Canadian international Alphonso Davies scored his second goal for Bayern Munich in the team’s 6-1 win over Mainz on Saturday.

Davies finished off a wonderful team move from Bayern in the 80th minute to notch the sixth tally of the game for the hosts.

Ironically, Davies’ first-ever goal for Bayern back in March also came against Mainz.

Bayern trailed after just six minutes when Jean-Paul Boetius struck via a header. However, the Bavarians overturned the deficit right before halftime and eventually cruised to victory.

Davies entered the game in the 67th minute, replacing Ivan Perisic on the wing and looked quite lively. Of course, Bayern also led 4-1 at that stage, so Mainz’s defence was there for the taking.

Nevertheless, the Canadian completed eight of his 10 passes, including a brilliant cross for Robert Lewandowski that the Polish striker nearly converted.

The 18-year-old was called up to the latest Canada squad by head coach John Herdman as the Reds take on Cuba in a pair of Concacaf Nations League matches.
