Canada’s Alphonso Davies missed a Tenth-minute penalty towards Belgium, and lots of followers had been left perplexed as to why he took it within the first place.
- Davies took kick as an alternative of David
- Courtois made snug save
- David takes pens for Lille
WHAT HAPPENED? Davies’ early miss on Wednesday got here in Canada’s first World Cup look since 1986. It might have been his nation’s first ever objective on the event.
Would Lille’s designated penalty-taker Jonathan David have been a better option?
Perhaps Davies bought a bit forward of himself.
His followers have his again, although.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Canada began brightly towards Belgium and will probably be pissed off that they could not discover a fast breakthrough, with Michy Batshuayi having given the Belgians the lead towards the run of play.
WHAT NEXT FOR CANADA? Davies and co. are in Group F with Belgium, Croatia and Morocco. They are going to face Croatia of their second match on Sunday.
