“Alphonso Davies, where did that come from? Wow!”
Those were the words of the play-by-play broadcaster calling today’s match between Bayern Munich and Tottenham, amazed by what he just saw.
Davies, the 18-year-old Canadian international and former Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder, scored an incredible goal, with a thunderous strike for Bayern Munich.
Picking up the ball well outside of the 18-yard box, Davies curled a well-placed right-footed strike past Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris.
The goal levelled the match in the 81st minute of the final of the Audi Cup – a preseason tournament held in Munich. Bayern went on to lose in penalties.

Davies had one goal in six Bundesliga appearances off the bench last season after an MLS-record transfer from the Whitecaps.
