Davies leads Canada to tie with Costa Rica

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Alphonso Davies scored as Canada earned a 1-1 draw against Costa Rica on Tues­day in the pre­lim­i­nary round of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The 16-year-old Davies’ third goal in two games came in the 26th minute and helped the Cana­dian men’s soc­cer team move one step closer to qual­i­fy­ing for the knock­out rounds of the tour­na­ment.

Fran­cisco Calvo replied for Costa Rica in the 42nd minute, head­ing in a corner kick.

Canada now has four points through two games, which is gen­er­ally enough to qual­ify for the quar­ter-fi­nals but there is still one game to play against Hon­duras on Fri­day night in Frisco, Texas.
