Bayern Munich youngster Alphonso Davies has once again earned a call-up to play for Canada during the upcoming international break. Davies, who is just 18 and already has 13 senior-team caps for Canada, will help the squad prepare to play at home against Cuba on Saturday September 7th at BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario before the team travels to George Town, Grand Cayman to take on Cuba on Tuesday September 10th.

Davies has spent much of his time so far this season honing his skills at wing, while also learning the finer points of playing outside-back, a position where Bayern Munich seems to favor playing the young Canadian.

While he is often an option for the Bayern Munich first team, Davies is getting more consistent game time with Bayern II as the squad battles through its first season in the 3. Liga. The former Vancouver Whitecaps star will have a familiar face from 3. Liga on the roster as Adam Straith, a center-back for FC Hansa Rostock, will join Davies on the Canadian team.
