Celtic fans will have plenty of football to watch tomorrow if they want to track their international stars.

Ange Postecoglou‘s Hoops may currently be on an enforced break, but there’s still lots to get your teeth in to if you know where to look.

The competitive international programme gets underway today, with some pretty tasty matches including Italy vs England.

But tomorrow is the day when it kicks-off for most of Celtic’s stars – and there are some intriguing encounters.

Daizen Maeda‘s Japan are in action tomorrow at 10:30am (Celtic Park time). They host Uruguay in the Kirin Cup in Tokyo.

Half an hour after that, Jürgen Klinsmann takes charge of his first game as South Korea boss. Hoops forward Hyeongyu Oh is unlikely to start in the friendly against Colombia, but could well feature off the bench.

And if you’re looking for action closer to home then there is a tasty Friday night double-header live on television.

In Euro 2024 qualifying action, Sead Haksabanovic‘s Montenegro go to Bulgaria in what is an open group.

The Razgrad fixture is a 5pm kick-off and will be shown live on Viaplay Sports 1.

Following that, Carl Starfelt‘s Sweden have a big challenge on their hands against Belgium, the fourth best team in the world. (FIFA rankings)

That fixture kicks off at 7:45pm and will be live on Viaplay Sports 2.

We’ll have to wait and see whether Haksabanovic or Starfelt are actually involved for their countries. Both have been in good form for Celtic recently, and you’d hope that will work in their favour.
