Who is Alphonso Davies?

Alphonso Boyle Davies, a professional soccer player from Canada, competes for both the Canadian national team and the Bundesliga club Bayern Munich as a left-back or winger. Due to his speed, dribbling, and creativity, he is considered one of the best full-backs in the world.

The 22-year-life old’s had a difficult beginning because he was born to Liberian parents at a camp for refugees in Ghana.

Following the Second Liberian Civil War, his parents left the nation and immigrated to Canada in 2005, residing in Edmonton.

At the age of 14, Davies moved to Vancouver to enroll in the Whitecaps FC Residency program after they instantly recognized his football talent.

He signed a professional contract with the Vancouver Whitecaps a year later, and he made his debut there in July 2016. He was the second-youngest player to play in the MLS at the time, just behind Freddy Adu.

In 2017, Davies became a citizen of Canada, and on that same day, they enrolled him in the senior team camp.

His talent was evident, and clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United took notice.

  Davies, who scored the quickest goal in a world cup

The Canadian’s goal, which came in at 68 seconds, is the quickest in a World Cup group stage encounter since Clint Dempsey’s goal against Ghana in 2014, which came at 29 seconds.

The Canadian fans have been anxiously awaiting the return of their team to the World Cup. After their debut in 1986, Les Rouges are participating in their second World Cup.

The 1986 team was blanked in each of the three games, therefore the supporters did not have a goal to shout for at the time. In Canada’s opening 1-0 loss of Belgium, they were again denied the opportunity to celebrate a goal.

But early on Sunday, Davies sparked a national frenzy.
