Alphonso Davies confesses the Canadian national team as a joke for the Bayern Munich team: Okezone Bola

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.

Moreover, Davies said that one day his country’s football would be as advanced as that of his peers. Davies has ambitions to take the Canadian national team to the World Cup.

“Every time I come home I just want to prove to them that we are improving and improving every time we play. My ambition is to take Canada to the World Cup and hopefully I can face my teammates, I will show that we can compete with you,” continued Davies.
