The athlete, who plays the offensive line for his country, put his team ahead against Panama on Wednesday

Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies scored Canada’s surprise goal against Panama on Wednesday, prompting former the United States men’s national team player Jozy Altidore to call him “international” amidst comments on social media.

Davies ran half the length of the pitch to steal the ball from an unsuspecting Sam Adekugbe before entering the box leaving goalkeeper Luis Mejia on the ground.

The 66-minute effort put Canada ahead 2-1 in a crucial World Cup qualifier, with the founders finally pulling the trigger 4-1.

BIG PICTURE

Canada was trailing 1-0 just five minutes after the nearest team in the third race at the CONCACAF table – the final World Cup qualifier.

With a series of drawings entering the game, that early goal conceded could not be considered a scary sign.

However, Canada pulled the win with Davies’ help and now has 10 points, two from Panama for the third time.
