FOOTBALLER KARAMOKO Dembele, aged 13, made his England Under-15 on Saturday (Dec 17) – just two months after representing Scotland’s under-16s.

Karamoko, who is also eligible to play for Ivory Coast, came off the bench in the second half of England under 15s’ 5-3 victory over Turkey at St George’s Park.

The diminutive playmaker even managed to register an assist in his first appearance for the Three Lions.

Karamoko posted a picture from inside the St George’s Park changing room following the team’s comfortable 5-3 win.

“Good experience at England, glad to have won 5-3 against Turkey and have assisted 1, played well,” he wrote.
Karamoko first shot to fame after making an appearance for Celtic’s under-20 team in October.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was keen to reduce expectations of the young starlet, but admitted he was a “special talent.”

He told talkSport radio: “He turns 14 in February. He’s again a big talent, but he’s one we have to be careful with. But he really is a special talent.”
