Who would think a guy from Canada could win the Champions League

The victory over PSG helped Alphonso Davies and Bayer Munich win the Champions League. In the post-match interview, he did not hide his joy.

“Two years ago if anyone told me this, I would never believe it,” was Davies’s answer. In it, he mentioned a moment two years ago, when he became known in the Bundesliga.

There are still articles on the Bundesliga homepage about Alphonso Davies two years ago. It is the story that his father tells of a destitute life living in a refugee camp to avoid the Liberian civil war.

Then came the migration to Canada where Davies was raised and raised. He also started playing football and soon showed his talent. He joined Bayern Munich and gradually established himself despite his very young age.

The final match was not a good match for Davies. But during his long journey in the Champions League this season, he absolutely deserves credit.

“It was a great feeling. It was all you dreamed of as a kid, to go to Europe and win the Champions League with a great team like Bayern,” Davies continued to share his feelings. on television.

“I’m happy to be here with the medal around my neck and the side trophy edge”.

The journey to the final clearly reflects the thickness of the force between the two teams. Before Atalanta, PSG lost Di Maria, Marco Verratti, and Kylian Mbappe just came on from the bench.

And PSG must fight until the last seconds to overcome the underrated opponent. When Di Maria and Mbappe returned, PSG easily defeated Leipzig in the semi-finals.

When Benjamin Pavard was injured, Joshua Kimmich was pulled back to the position of right-back. He played so brilliant that Pavard, now completely healed, still suffered from the bench. In fact, it is difficult to return Kimmich to the midfield when Leon Goretzka and Thiago Alcantara are both playing very well.
