Canadian soccer sensation Alphonso Davies says he will donate his World Cup earnings to charity. Davies is a 21-year-old Bayern Munich fullback that was born in a Ghanaian refugee camp after his parents fled the civil war in Liberia. His family arrived in Canada when he was five where they eventually settled in Edmonton.
In a social media post Davies said “Canada welcomed me and my family and gave us the opportunity for a better life,.. It enabled me to live in my dreams. It’s a great honour to play for Canada and I want to give back, so I’ve decided that I will donate this years World Cup earnings to charity.”
It is still not determined how much earnings Davies will get from the World Cup which kicks off November 21 in Qatar. Canada Soccer and the men’s national team are still in compensation negotiations. Dissatisfaction in pay caused the players to boycott a planned friendly against Panama in June in Vancouver.
