ALPHONSO DAVIES still has a chance to appear at the World Cup in Qatar despite picking up an injury on Saturday.
The Bayern Munich star is set to appear for Canada in the tournament, but worries grew after he suffered a hamstring strain against Hertha Berlin.
Bayern have calmed fears over his injury and confirmed that his spot at the World Cup is “not at risk”.
The Bavarian club has also said that the defender will not be playing in their remaining league fixtures against Werder Breman and Schalke before the start of the World Cup.
“The 22-year-old full-back suffered a hamstring strain in the 3-2 win at Hertha BSC on Saturday.
“The diagnosis was confirmed by the German record champions’ medical unit.
“The Canada international’s participation in the World Cup in Qatar is not at risk.”
Davies is one of the stars of the Canadian football team alongside Lille striker Jonathan David and Club Brugge forward Cyle Larin.
Canada is in Group F and faces a tough set of matches in their attempts to make it to the knockout rounds which will kick off on November 23.
With Belgium, Croatia, and Morocco in their group, Davies’ fitness could be the difference between making it through or not.
Davies has been a regular for the Bundesliga side this season having played 19 times in all competitions.
