Sheffield Wednesday vs Sunderland - Theo Corbeanu says Owls are in his memories forever after ‘amazing’ start and goal

Sheffield Wednesday knew they’d signed an exciting young talent in Theo Corbeanu, and now he’s starting to show what he’s all about.

The 19-year-old winger hasn’t had too much game time at Hillsborough since making his loan switch from Wolverhampton Wanderers, but after plenty of work on the training ground he was handed a starting berth on Tuesday night against Sunderland – albeit in an unfamiliar position as a left wing back.

But despite the positional switch, Corbeanu hit the ground running, and finished the first half with a goal and assist to his name, before leaving the field in the second half to a standing ovation and chants of ‘Theo, Theo’ around Hillsborough.

The Wolves youngster said afterwards that it was a special occasion for him, telling the club, “It was an amazing feeling… This is a day that I’ll never forget - my first goal for this great club, and to celebrate with the fans was a really surreal feeling.

“I’m really happy about it, happy about the performance - the team and my own - and we got three points.

“Coming off a few draws none of us were really happy, so I think this is a great way to bounce back and put us in a good mood going forward.

“I was going to take a touch, and I thought ‘Should I take a touch?’, but I’ve been working on it in training - one touch finishing - and it paid off now. I’m happy I did.”

Theo Corbeanu scored his first goal for Sheffield Wednesday against Sunderland on Tuesday.
