Wow guys, this one was special. I was in the building for this one and got to see Davies up close in a big match.    he didn’t offer a ton offensively in this one and was absolutely GASSED by t

Phonzie still doing Phonzie things after being injured.. David finding form in Ligue 1/Europe.. Eustaquio emerging as a top CM in Portugal.. Millar tearing apart PL2 and looking at a Championship loan

Kudos to Hansi Flick for taking Davies off just as David was about to start for Lille so we could all switch streams. Now there's a coach who truly understands the needs of Canadian soccer fans.

Here is to Phonzie, his friends and family. To those have helped him develop. Most of all a glass raised to all of you on here past and present that have spent years dreaming of moments like this. Moments lots of nations like where I grew up would take for granted. Glorious stuff and another milestone for Canadian football. On to the next step.

Cheers.

Could have done without this dig, but cheers. Congrats Phonzy

Consideration?  It's in the bag.

It probably is, I am just thinking that there are still enough clueless members of the Canadian media that will think it should go to Conor McDavid or any random Canuck on whichever team wins the Stanley Cup. I guess it won’t go to a CFL player at least

I love how every tweet about him has some Ghanaian/African people saying how he’s actually not Canadian but Ghanaian/Liberian.

I don't mind sharing Phonzie because  he's ours. The more followers and fans he attracts the more lucrative his endorsements and publicity for Canadian soccer. What irks me is the Canadian corporate world just missing a huge opportunity. The Davies story epitomizes what Canada is all about and now he is  a hot commodity. Typical.... too late to the party.

Don't know what to even say about this. Always liked him, but never imagined him to be starting right away like this. Such a huge achievement. I'm hoping a lot of Canadian kids are watching this.

Unfortunately, when neither SNP nor TSN or CBC showing the game

through cable/satellite tv, that's not happening.

BTW, When was the last time Canadian soccer news on headlines of major sport websites? 1986?

Yeah but it was live-streamed on Twitter and I suspect there are more kids on Twitter than who would grab a remote and flip to CBC.  
 

Any way we can tell how many watched the live stream on Twitter?

No way. A tiny fraction of people in Canada watched this because it was not on television. It’s a real shame. The live streaming only option is a disaster for the exposure of soccer in this country. Kids have no access. Casual fans have no access. It’s for middle aged, wealthy urbanites. A niche viewership of core supporters. Will have a long term impact in my opinion. European football has basically vanished from mainstream conversation in Canada.

Having a Twitter war with these fool , basically telling me that Davies more or less is not really Canadian lol. Canada has nothing to do with his development lol. 
“  Alphonso's talent is from his African ancestry.
No different from the guys I played with who were Italian, Portuguese.
Their talent came from their ancestry “. Incredible and this fool is supposedly Canadian tweeting  this crap!
