Theo Corbeanu celebrates after winning Canada Youth Player of the Year

Teenage Wolves talent Theo Corbeanu has been named Canada Youth Player of the Year.

Corbeanu made his international debut back in March and scored within just four minutes, in a 5-1 World Cup qualifying win over Bermuda.

He has made six senior appearances overall, and was part of the squad for the summer’s Gold Cup.

Corbeanu and Canada suffered late, late heartbreak in that tournament, losing the semi-final to a penalty in the 9th minute of stoppage time.

That night, he came off the bench on 69 minutes, with the score at 1-1, to try and help his side win the game before Hector Herrera’s spot-kick won the game.

Last night was a happier one for him and he took to Instagram to celebrate winning the award he said topped off an ‘amazing’ 2021.

Corbeanu is currently trying to tie down a spot in Sheffield Wednesday’s side, as he gets to grips with the demands of regular men’s football.

The talent he has is clear from winning this award and as he said in his message above, this is just the beginning for him.

He needs to use it as a springboard to keep improving and pushing on to get more senior international recognition and prove himself at higher and higher levels.
