Davies leads Canada to tie with Costa Rica
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.
