The right-back set up Emil Forsberg for Sweden's opener.

Sweden took on Denmark last night in a big Scandinavian derby with a place at Euro 2016 next summer the eventual prize.

The game finished 2-1 to Sweden with the big man Zlatan Ibrahimovic again making the headlines.

However Celtic fans will be pleased to know that one of their players was the real star on the night.

Mikael Lustig had an absolutely fantastic game at right-back for the Swedes proving his ability as a top option for the Bhoys and his nation.

Not only was he solid defensively but he was also a thorn in the side of Denmark in attack. His delightful pass assisted Emil Forsberg for the opening goal of the game, the Leipzig winger clearly appreciative of the Celtic man's exceptional cutback.

Lustig has been a regular for Celtic and Sweden this season after a difficult 2014-15 campaign. He played just 17 games for Celtic last term because of a long list of injuries and did not play after February.

However it is good to see he is getting back to his best and Celtic and Sweden will be reaping the benefits.
