Karamoko Dembele is already ending careers at just 14 years old

The Celtic wonderkid showed what he is capable of with an unreal first touch in Scotland's game against Uruguay

We all know Karamoko Dembele is a pretty talented kid.

The 14-year-old has been the source of much speculation in recent months after bursting on the scene for Celtic’s youth sides.

And while we should all be careful not to put pressure on someone who, we shouldn’t forget, was born after the 2002 World Cup, some clips deserve to be watched over and over again.


Yesterday, Dembele helped Scotland Under-16 (two years his senior of course) to a 2-0 victory over Uruguay in the Under-16s International Tournament, but it was one moment in particular that got people very excited indeed.

Dembele’s first touch in the following clip is an absolute joy to behold, so savour it…

Dembele wasn’t quite done there – not only did he slot home a penalty, he also was busy toying with the opposition on a regular basis.

Good to see these kids doing something useful with their school holidays, at least.
