CELTIC stars Moussa Dembele and Olivier Ntcham helped France Under-21s maintain their winning start to Euro 2019 qualifying last night with a 2-1 win over Montenegro. 

Both of the Hoops youngsters were named in the starting eleven at the Stade de l'Aube in Troyes, but the home side went behind in first half injury time courtesy of Meris Skenderovic's goal. 

A second half fightback ensured France made it two wins from two at the start of their bid to reach the European Championships in Italy and San Marino.

Both players were substituted during the game, with Ntcham making way for Lys Mousset on the 65th minute before Dembele was replaced by Maxime Lopez with seven minutes remaining. 

Both of France's goals came from the bench, with Martin Terrier drawing level with his first touch and Mousset heading home the winner on the 75th minute.

Ntcham and Dembele are expected to feature again on Monday when the Group 9 leaders face Luxembourg in Esch-sur-Alzette.
