Watch him for a few minutes and it’s not hard to see why. The 16-year-old Canadian is already featuring for the Vancouver Whitecaps, and has a silky skill set and an effervescent attitude on the pitch.

Davies has two goals and two assists in 18 appearances with the ‘Caps first team, and another two goals in eight matches for Whitecaps FC 2.

It’s still so early, but the idea of Canada, with Davies, and the USMNT, with Pulisic, rounding into their career apexes around the same time is dynamite.
