The Canadian Alphonso Davies’ career at the club Bayern Munich
Despite still only being 21-years-old, Alphonso Davies is a name that is known throughout the football world because of what he has already managed to achieve since turning professional just a couple of years ago.
In this article, we will take a look at the extraordinary career that he has already managed to create for himself atFC Bayern Munich
, whilst also taking a look at what he could potentially provide Canada moving forward,
especially with the National Team has qualified for its first FIFA World Cup in 36 years!
Alphonso Davies’ meteoric rise and playing for FC Bayern Munich
Alphonso Davies had joined FC Bayern Munich in 2019 for what was a then-MLS record transfer fee when he signed from the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Having become the first player to have been born in the 2000s to feature in Major League Soccer, he quickly made an impression in the Bundesliga and did not appear to take too long to get used to new surroundings,
a new way of life, and culture, as well as making the step up in the quality of football being played.
In fact, in his first full season with the Bavarian giants, he managed to see his efforts be rewarded with the Bundesliga Rookie of the Season award for the 2019-20 campaign,
in which he managed to acquire a huge haul of silverware. In that season, he won the Bundesliga, the UEFA Champions League, and the DFB-Pokal.
There are not many players who are able to say they have done that at any point of their careers, let alone as a rookie.
Naturally, many have dubbed Davies as one of the best left-backs of his generation.
It is perhaps hard to try and argue against that point given what he has managed to achieve thus far in this career, both at the club level and with the Canada National side.
What has he managed to win at FC Bayern Munich so far?
Most footballers would already be rather envious of what he has managed to achieve thus far, despite having only started his career in 2016 when he was first selected by the Vancouver Whitecaps and made his debut.
As an FC Bayern Munich player, he has already been able to win more than what some players at the biggest clubs fail to win, with a plethora of winner’s medals already to his name and perhaps filling up his own personal trophy cabinet rather nicely.
Let’s take a look at whathe has won as a Die Roten player
● 4x Bundesliga titles
● 2x DFB-Pokal Champion
● 2x German Super Cups
● 1x UEFA Champions League
● 1x UEFA SuperCup
● 1x FIFA Club World Cup
What has he managed to achieve for Canada?
Of course, whilst it is always going to be incredibly difficult to replicate the success that he has had at FC Bayern Munich to the same extent for the National Team, he has already managed to achieve a lot for the Canada Men’s Soccer Team.
Indeed, he was the youngest player to appear for the national team in June 2017, whilst he also broke multiple records when he netted a brace against French Guiana in a 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup match.
He was also the top scorer in the CONCACAF Gold Cup that year.
Naturally, there will be a lot of excitement about what he can potentially provide his National Team in the upcoming FIFA World Cup, with a lot of excitement around many of the provinces in the country, especially within Ontario.
Now that there are anumber of different Ontario online sportsbooks
available to choose from and wager with after sports betting went live in the province with new amendments,
there will be fans that will likely be looking ahead to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar this winter.
Canada has qualified for the first time in 36 years, and with Davies at the helm of the side, there will be many Canadians and those based in Ontario that might be considering to fully back the team as they may feel that with the left-back in the side,
they have a greater chance of having a successful tournament.
What is Canada’s FIFA World Cup Group?
As we know,Canada
has been placed in Group F with some FIFA World Cup regulars. Indeed, Belgium is perhaps going to be the toughest challenge of the group and perhaps a side that many are not expecting a result against.
Croatia is another country that regularly participates in the tournament and even made the Final in the last edition, which is where things could become tricky for the Maple Leaf Country,
as it is likely they will need to try and get a result against one of the two European nations. Morocco is also involved in Group F and the Africans will also provide a test.
Naturally, with Alphonso Davies in the squad, there will be many Canadians that will b hoping that he can continue to be the star that he is and help them to progress from the Group,
although they will need to be wary of putting the weight of the country’s hopes and dreams on a kid; remember, he will have only just turned 22 by the time the tournament kicks off.
Nonetheless, his ability and the way he plays do make him appear a lot older than he actually is, which is why there will be so many placing expectations on him.
It is impossible to deny or suggest that Davies has had anything other than the emphatic career he has already experienced in such a short time period, and it would also be unlikely to expect it to go downhill whilst continuing to play for FC Bayern.
Naturally, you can expect him to go through moments and spells where things are not quite going right,
but there is no denying that he has the talent to be a Canadian legend and one that many kids already look up to as a role model and inspiration, especially after witnessing what he has managed to achieve in Germany for his club!
