‘Edouard shines again’ is the headline that French football fans are waking up to this morning.

The Celtic striker is coming to the fore in exactly the same way that Moussa Dembele did with impressive club form in the shape of goals supplemented by his displays on the international stage.

A double against Albania on Friday earned Edouard a starting place in the French u-21 side against the Czech Republic with the Celtic striker again on the scoresheet.

The Czech’s were leading 1-0 when Edouard created space for himself in the six yard box before converting in a manner that will be very familiar to Scottish defences and goalkeepers.

France went on to win the match 3-1 to return Edouard to Celtic in the perfect mood to take on Hamilton Accies on Sunday.

Next week the young striker will be the centre of attention when Celtic take on Rennes in the Europa League with French fans curious to see the development of a second striker that is learning things the Celtic Way.
