Alphonso Davies took to social media Thursday to provide a brief take on Canada’s 1-0 loss to second-ranked Belgium at the World Cup.
“A disappointing result against a top team in the World Cup. We got two more games to go, we go again on Sunday!” wrote the Bayern Munich star. “Thank you to all the fans for their support.”
The 22-year-old from Edmonton was front and centre Wednesday at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in nearby Al Rayyan. He had a chance in the 11th minute to score Canada’s first-ever goal at the tournament but his penalty kick was saved by Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
Asked by beIN Sports after the game what was going through his mind when he stepped up to the penalty spot, Davies provided a more general answer.
