Spotlight will inevitably find Moussa, wanted or not

356

You know when you get to a stage with a player when you think, “Moussa, how about you slow down with the international goals?” Celtic are ticking along well right now, and while I appreciate how important it is that when we sell players, we sell them at an elevated price, I’d be happy if Moussa didn’t attract too much attention right now.

His hat-trick for France under-21 last night was another milestone in his inextricable rise to the top. Coming hard on the heels of Olivier Ntcham stealing the show last week for the same international side, we can expect plenty of scouts at Celtic Park in the coming weeks.

Australia v Honduras tomorrow morning is the last World Cup qualification fixture involving Celtic players before headcount returns to full levels at Lennoxtown. This international break (for those who got the break) was invaluable to Celtic. We have two games per week from Ross County on Saturday until the winter break on 30 December.

That’s 13 games in 42 days, including a cup final, two Champions League fixtures, Aberdeen, Hibs, Hearts and Newco; the squad will be stretched to its limit.

  2. Eriksens hat trick was a purists delight.

     

    A level of skill that was a privilege to witness.

     

    First goal a beautifully placed shot with right instep.

     

    Second another excellently placed with left instep.

     

    And the third was a right footed volley.

     

    Sheer brilliance.

     

    He must have watched a Lubo video.

  4. DBHOY The aim is to GET to the World Cup. Remember what that was like? The struggle when you get there is worth the effort.

  5. Got to say, and I will get pelters, but it needs said. England have the correct formula for success. They , and knowing how arrogant they are, have reluctantly followed the German football system and bringing in the young guns, and the German system is the best. The current German squad is made up of guys who have played together, playing the same system , since they were 8 years old, and boy does it show.

     

    Now, England appear to be following that with great success at under17 and under 20.

     

    Watch this space.
