The first hope during an international break is that the players return without injury. Last night I realised that my next hope is that Odsonne Edouard stops attracting attention to himself by putting the ball in the net for France Under-21s.
He scored twice in a 4-0 win against Albania. Odsonne’s form is either going to drop off a cliff edge, or the summer of 2020 is going to have a familiar theme for Celtic. We should be busy planning contingencies now.
