Davies has had a hugely successful time at Bayern Munich ever since his move in 2019. He won the double with the Bundesliga side in the 2019-20 season as the Germans won the UEFA Champions League title along with the league title.

 

That was also his first year in the Bundesliga, and Davies was handed the “Rookie of the Year” award for his performances. He is the first Canadian to win the UEFA Champions League crown.

Davies played his first match for Edmonton, Canada after leaving his home to develop as a footballer. Recently, he played as a striker alongside Jonathan David, but didn’t do too well in the match against Costa Rica. Nevertheless, these are early days for Davies in the 2021-22 season, and surely, he will soon shine at the World Cup Qualifiers.
