Celtic’s Moussa Dembele scores 11-minute hat-trick for France U21

Celtic striker Moussa Dembele scored an 11-minute hat-trick as France U21s came from behind to win 3-1 in Slovenia.

It was the quickest treble by a player in any French age group for 15 years.

Dembele coolly slotted home his first from the penalty spot in the 34th minute and three minutes later supplied an emphatic finish as he met a cross at the far post.

His third on the stroke of half-time was the pick of the bunch as he curled a shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box with the goalkeeper motionless.

The goals took Dembele’s record for the French youngsters to seven goals in 10 matches.

He was included in Didier Deschamps’ provisional France squad for this week’s friendlies against Wales and Germany, but did not make the final cut.

After an injury-disrupted start to the season with Celtic, he has six goals in 12 games for the Scottish champions.
