Corbeanu had been showing some promising signs for the Tangerines in recent weeks.

And he finally opened his account on Saturday against Burnley in a thrilling game.

The 20-year-old struck on 21 minutes after the visitors had made a horrible start to the game. Blackpool were 2-0 down thanks to goals from Josh Brownhill and Nathan Tella.

But Corbeanu scored after picking the pocket of Josh Cullen on the edge of the Burnley penalty area.

The Clarets were trying to play out from the back, but Corbeanu was onto Cullen like a flash and then finished with aplomb, sending Aro Muric the wrong way.

The game would go on to end 3-3, with Corbeanu playing 64 minutes.

Lancashire Live were impressed with his performance, giving him an 8/10 and saying: “Caused plenty of problems pressing high in the first half, winning the ball back to open up the chance for his opening goal.”

Theo Corbeanu must now kick on and find consistency for Blackpool

He’s getting opportunities which is good, and he needs to give Michael Appleton a reason to continue picking him.

With the World Cup around the corner, it is vital for him that he is putting himself on display for John Herdman as much as possible.
