‘Amazing’: Commentator was blown away with what one Celtic player did in Canada match

With no club football to keep us entertained during the international break, TBR Celtic is keeping track of the Celtic players who are serving their country. The international break is currently in full swing.

Just this morning, we talked about how Matt O’Riley had been called up to the Danish team to replace Kasper Dolberg. This is fantastic news for the 22-year-old, whose performance this year has earned him national attention.

However, we are now providing you with an update on Reo Hatate, a midfielder for Celtic who is currently playing for Japan.

Hatate, 25, was recalled to Hajime Moriyasu’s team. Although he has yet to secure a starting position, Hatate did play as a substitute against Alistair Johnston’s Canada.

Despite failing to score, Hatate left Japan legend Koji Nakata speechless during the game with a stunning display of brilliance. The Japanese won the match 4-1.

When Hatate passed away, Nakata, who has 57 caps for his nation, was commentating on the game.

Nakata said [ABEMA TV], “The first drop was great, and then he went out again. Hatate’s one-touch pass was also amazing”

The Celtic fans will be delighted with this as it seems Hatate is taking the confidence he is now showing in a Hoops jersey on the road with his country.

They will also be hoping that Hatate continues to impress as they will want their classy midfielder to return from international duty full of confidence for the tough run of fixtures they have coming up. He’s been so good this season Kenny Miller labelled him a ‘genius‘.

Hatate signed a new five-year deal at Celtic this summer amid growing speculation that he could be on his way out of the club.

The supporters will, however, be hoping that their hero will continue to find his form as they attempt to maintain their dominance of Scottish football and advance in the Champions League now that his immediate future has been determined.

Additionally, ‘They might’: Scott McDonald thinks Celtic may be about to make a significant acquisition soon.
