According to the Football Association of Finland’s website, Rasmus Schüller has been called up to the national team for Suomi’s upcoming World Cup Qualifying matches.

The midfielder is expected to play in the Owls’ matches against Turkey and Austria (March 24th and 28th, respectively).

Schüller has looked good despite the rough start to the inaugural season, so he will be missed during the game in New England against the Revolution on March 25th, but this is a great opportunity for him to represent his country.

Finland currently sits fifth of six teams in Group I of UEFA World Cup Qualifying with one point from four matches. They sit one place ahead of Kosovo because of goal differential.

Will the loss of Schüller affect an already embattled United side looking to break a dismal two-match losing streak? Let us know in the comments below!
