More Details

The great striker for Minnesota United FC has been called up to the senior team for the first time, and he will play for Canada in their forthcoming friendlies against the Netherlands on June 6 and France on June 9.

In 15 games this season, Oluwaseyi has a team-high 7 goals and 4 assists. Teemu Pukki, a Finland international, has just lost his starting position.

After being selected No. 17 overall (first round) out of St. John’s University in the 2022 MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas, the 24-year-old first joined Minnesota. Before making his breakthrough at MNUFC, he played 27 games on loan for USL Championship team San Antonio FC last year, scoring 17 goals and 7 assists.

With Canada, Oluwaseyi joins ten other MLS call-ups as they prepare for their inaugural camp under head coach Jesse Marsch. The mid-May appointment of the former CF Montréal and New York Red Bulls manager came ahead of Copa América 2024 and as Canada was ready to co-host the FIFA World Cup in 2026.

Canada’s striker pool is led by former Orlando City SC player Cyle Larin and Jonathan David. Theo Bair, a former homegrown of the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, is also included.

Celio continues to elevate his game each and every day and we hope that he doesn’t stop raising the bar.”
