Alphonso Davies is a key member of the Bayern Munich squad and the Canada national team, with whom he will play in the coming World Cup in Qatar 2022.
Now, the full-back has made it public that he wants to give back to his country for all that it has given him throughout his life in the form of a donation from the profits he makes from the World Cup.
“Canada welcomed me and my family and gave us the opportunity for a better life,” he tweeted.
“It enabled me to live 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 year’s World Cup earnings to charity.”
Davies was born in a refugee camp in Ghana, where his parents were fleeing the war in Liberia, his country of origin. In 2005, when Davies was five years old, his parents were able to emigrate to Canada.
