The kid did it again.

(I may have used that lead for a Christian Pulisic goal, but this is a different country, you know?).

Alphonso Davies, 16, scored for the third time in two Canada caps, and this one was a very smart, side-footed finish that has given Canada hope of winning Group A at the 2017 Gold Cup.

If Canada can pickup all three points, they will be a draw against Honduras away from winning Group A. A draw all but guarantees their participation in the knockout rounds.

Davies has four goals in 34 appearances for the Vancouver Whitecaps, though he’s yet to finish in 21 MLS appearances.
