Alphonso Davies

Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies recorded a career first after helping the club win the Uefa Champions League.

The German giants sealed a sixth Champions League title on Sunday following a 1-0 win over PSG in Lisbon.

While the Bayern team has many stars, Davies was one of the most consistent in the course of the season.

In winning Europe’s premier club football competition, the 19-year-old has become the first Canadian male footballer to win the Champions League.

Davies was born at Buduburam, a refugee camp in Ghana, but to Canada with his Liberian parents when was aged five.

He grew up in Edmonton Alberta, where he started his football career and, therefore, committed his international future to Canada.

“Who would have guessed it a kid from Canada, Edmonton Alberta,” the teenage left-back wrote on Twitter after Bayern’s Champions League triumph.

“Most people don’t even know where that. Where it snows I’m talking -40 weather, he’s now a champion league winner.”

“This one for everyone who’s chasing a dream right now, take it from me don’t give up it may seem impossible now but just keep working on your craft keep grinding,” he added.
