Canadian National Alphonso Davies Returned to Action For Bayern Munich Sunday

A week ago, Bayern Munich and Canadian soccer fans held their breath when Alphonso Davies was taken to the hospital with a suspected concussion:

Bayern has important Champions League Games on the schedule, and of course, Davies will be a prominent player representing Canada at the World Cup in Qatar.

Head injuries can be tricky to treat, and everybody is different. Some guys can return in a week; others are out for months. It’s essential that teams take head injuries seriously, so that left a lot of soccer fans wondering what was next for Davies.

Bayern later confirmed that Davies had not suffered a concussion and was dealing with a cranium contusion later last weekend. Davies sat out Bayern’s CL game on Wednesday. But, to everybody’s delight, Phonsie returned to the pitch Sunday in Bayern’s 5-0 win over SC Freiburg.

Seeing Davies back on the field was a breath of fresh air. If Canada wants any chance to get out of the group stages in November, Davies needs to be on the field.
