Davies scores Canada’s first ever goal at a World Cup

Alphonso Davies fired Canada into the lead against Croatia with a well-placed header in just the second minute.

The wing back found himself free in the box after a counter attack, and headed past Dominik Livakovic into the Croatia goal.

It was Canada’s first ever World Cup goal, and gave John Herdman’s side a chance of reaching the knockout stages.

The strike provided a a degree of redemption for Davies, who had a penalty saved in Canada’s valiant loss to Belgium in their opening game.

A win would have put Canada second in Group F, with Morocco the other side in a qualifying position and Belgium and Croatia the teams missing out.

Croatia fought back well, though, winning 4-1 to move top of the group and knocking out Canada in the process.

Fans were full of praise for the young Bayern Munich star after the goal, with one calling him a ‘history maker.’
