The Vancouver defender played three and a half years for the Oslo club, where he stood out with six assists in 95 games. In August 2021, the defender moved to Turkish Hatayspor.
Alphonso Davies needed help off the pitch as Bayern Munich won 3-2 at Hertha Berlin on November 5. He has now been named to Canada’s World Cup team. The Canadian National Team confirms that Twitter.
A clearly scarred Davies was replaced by injury in the 64th minute against Hertha Berlin earlier in November.
– According to the doctor, it is at least a torn muscle fiber. We’ll have to wait and see what they find out tomorrow, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann said after the game.
However, Davies was able to reassure Canadian fans the following week after the injury.
– There are still some pains, but in general I feel good. I will be 100% during the World Cup and I will certainly give my all for the national team, said the 22-year-old according to Daily mail.
Davies plays as a regular left-back at Bayern Munich but is listed as an attacking player in the World Cup squad.
Canada will play its first match at the Qatar World Cup on November 23 against Belgium.
