Wolves starlet Theo Corbeanu called up by Canada for the Gold Cup

Wolves prospect Theo Corbeanu has been named in the Canada squad for the forthcoming Gold Cup.

Last month, the 19-year-old was included among the preliminary squad and he has made the final cut.

The official Wolves Twitter account congratulated Corbeanu on the achievement.

And the player himself was reposting messages of congratulations on his Instagram story after the news.

Corbeanu has made just three appearances for his country, and just one start.

He scored on his debut as a substitute in a 5-1 win over Bermuda in March and made his first start against the Cayman Islands four days later.

This is an opportunity for Corbeanu to show what he can do on the international stage.

It does mean he’ll miss Wolves’ pre-season schedule, but he’ll have to show Bruno Lage what he can do in games for Canada rather than in training.

When does the Gold Cup start?

The Gold Cup kicks off next Saturday, on the 10 July and will take place in the United States.

Canada are in a group with the USA, Martinique and an as yet unknown team pending the completion of the preliminary qualification stage.

Canada should fancy themselves to get through the group stage at the very least.

And the tournament as a whole will be a great experience for the teenager, who will hope there are plenty more summers like this ahead.
