Canada gives update on Alphonso Davies’ injury

The 22-year-old suffered an injury in the 62nd minute of Bayern Munich’s 3-2 win over Hertha Berlin over the weekend.

Bayern quiere blindar a Alphonso Davies

Canada will start their pre-World Cup preparations by playing a friendly on 11 November against Bahrain in the Middle East with a domestic-based roster. After that match, the rest of the players that are going to be called up by head coach John Herdman will join the rest of the squad ahead of the start of the World Cup in Qatar.

Good and bad news for Canada

The Canada men’s national soccer team suffered a scare when Alphonso Davies was taken out in the 62nd minute of Bayern Munich’s 3-2 win over Hertha Berlin over the weekend. The 22-year-old appeared to be feeling discomfort in his right hamstring, but the good news is that it is nothing serious.

Bayern confirmed that Alphonso Davies will miss the team’s next two Bundesliga games before the break, but he is not at risk of missing the World Cup. It is expected that the 22-year-old joins the CMNST in training camp later this week in the Middle East and be available for selection for the Belgium match on 23 November.

The bad news is that backup goalkeeper Maxime Crépeau will miss the World Cup after breaking his leg in Saturday’s MLS Cup final between LAFC and the Philadelphia Union. The 28-year-old is expected to replace veteran Milan Borjan as Canada’s starting goalkeeper for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.
