- ‘These are three options to take steps on with this group of players,’ says manager John Herdman.
- Alphonso Davies of Edmonton missed Canada’s previous six outings after developing signs of myocarditis, a mild heart condition, following a bout of COVID-19.
Since November, Bayern Munich superstar Alphonso Davies, sidelined from international play, has been back to action with Canada for June matches against Iran, Curacao, and Honduras.
The 21-year-old from Edmonton missed Canada’s previous six tours after developing signs of myocarditis, a mild heart condition, following a bout of COVID-19.
Davies, named CONCACAF men’s player of the year in April, returned to Bayern Munich’s starting 11 for its April 6 Champions League quarterfinal against Spain’s Villarreal, incising his first club appearance since December 17.
There is also a spot in manager John Herdman’s 25-man team for fullback/wingback Raheem Edwards, who has been in great form with the Los Angeles Galaxy this season. The 26-year-old Edwards, who has four caps for Canada, last played for the national squad in March 2018 — a 1-0 victory over New Zealand in Spain in Herdman’s debut as manager. Edwards is tied for the MLS lead with three game-winning assists this season and has five assists.
