TORONTO – Alphonse Davies gushed about the Canadian national team, which his Bayern Munich teammates joked about. That is why he was determined to bring his country World Cup 2022.
Unlike Europe, football is not popular in Canada. Canadians prefer ice hockey and Canadian football.
Canada’s position in the FIFA rankings is also well below the countries of origin of its teammates. In addition, the compatriots of Davies who play in Europe are less known to the public, such as Atiba Hutchinson who wears the uniform of Besiktas and Junior Hoilett who defends Reading.

“It’s funny, because you know, they (the comrades) play for big European countries, they are in different tournaments. Sometimes the jokes they make annoy them, I understand that they are all jokes, but sometimes I take it personally,” Davies said.
