Celtic wonderkid Karamoko Dembele made his England under-15 debut in the 5-2 victory against Turkey on Saturday and fans of all teams have reacted with anger on Twitter.
The 13-year-old has been a childhood sensation and he has broken into the Celtic under-20’s squad this season before making his first appearance for the Scotland under-16’s side in November during a 2-2 draw against Wales.
Dembele has since spent time training with England’s youth teams at St George’s Park as the two countries battle for his allegiance, alongside Ivory Coast.
The forward came on as a substitute for the young Three Lions to make his England debut and add another impressive achievement to his rousing reputation.
Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:

A number of Premier League clubs have shown their interest in the youngster and Manchester City and Chelsea have reportedly made bids in an attempt to lure the attacker away from Celtic Park in January.
Dembele is an attacking midfielder by trade but he is capable of playing on either wing and he has already shown plenty of potential for a bright future.
The London-born Celtic star has been with the Scottish giants since the age of 10 and has always dominated his age group but the fact he is currently playing alongside footballers seven years ahead of his age group is testament to his talent.
