Celtic Stars Prepare To Shine On International Scene With World Cup Boost
Celtic’s Cameron Carter-Vickers and Josip Juranovic are ready for the World Cup in two weeks.
CCV joined Ange Postecoglou’s backline in June after joining last summer.
The defence combo has began playing regularly for the US and Croatian national teams during their 15-month stint in Glasgow.
Both nations want to make the 26-man squads for the Qatar 2022 winter World Cup, which starts in a few weeks.
This season, the Bhoys have played in the Champions League with the Hoops, showing their international bosses their skills.
As nations announce their tournament selections, it appears their Celtic effort has paid off.
Juranovic was confirmed to go to Qatar this morning and start as the right-back for his nation against Belgium, Canada, and Morocco.
Gregg Berhalter will announce his tournament squad later tonight.
Carter-Vickers, one of four US central defenders travelling to the World Cup, was included on a leaked team list, according to the Daily Mail.
Juranovic and Carter-Vickers join Celtic colleagues Aaron Mooy and Daizen Maeda in the 26-man roster for Qatar.
Celtic will make money and get to witness some of our first-team players on a big international platform.
Ange Postecoglou recruited all four players in the past 15 months. Thus, the Celtic manager and club have done well in the previous three windows.
After such a strong start to the 2022/23 season with the Hoops, they’ll be eager to play for their country.
Before the group breaks up and goes to Qatar with their foreign teams, they must focus on the next two games.
We wish the Bhoys well and look forward to seeing how they do at the important event.
