Canada star Alphonso Davies confident of FIFA World Cup return after 'scary' hamstring strain
FC Bayern Munich and Canadian men's national team star Alphonso Davies believes he will be ready to go come the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup after picking up a minor hamstring strain in club action last week.
The 22-year-old was ruled out for Bayern's next two club matches after exiting midway through the second half of Bayern's last Bundesliga clash with Hertha Berlin, and many feared he could miss Canada's return to the FIFA World Cup after a 36-year absence.
But, reports from the morning after stated Davies should be ready for Nov. 23 vs. Belgium, which Davies himself has circled, too.
"With the injury it was a scary situation, but the doctors told me everything would be fine after two weeks with rehab," Davies told reporters, as quoted by ESPN FC's Tom Hamilton. "I'm happy it wasn't a little bit longer, I'm truly grateful for that.
"I'm ready to get back on to the pitch and tomorrow I start my running and after that, we'll see how it is after that.
"There's still a little bit of pain, but overall I feel good and I feel I'll be at 100% during the World Cup and definitely giving my all for the national team."
