Israel played out a 0-0 draw with Wales in their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign on Sunday, leaving Chris Coleman’s side to wait before their place at next season’s prestigious tournament can be confirmed.
While the talk before the game centred around the likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, Celtic midfielder Nir Bitton put in a stellar performance in the middle for Israel, ensuring his country earned a point that could prove significant in their own bid to reach the finals.
Bitton has featured 10 times for Celtic already this season, scoring three goals and providing two assists in the process, and at this rate the 23-year-old looks like bettering his impressive previous campaign under manager Ronny Deila.
Celtic supporters know what a wonderful talent Bitton is and now fans across the world are beginning to take notice as he continues to shine for both club and country.

Great performance in the Israeli midfield by Nir Bitton. Or "Wick" as I like to call him.— PACohen (@philcohenCTID) September 6, 2015

Should be PL clubs all over Nir Bitton. Brilliant performance particularly having been injured, believe he hadn't trained this week— Doron Salomon (@DoronSalomon) September 6, 2015
