TBF, Davies wasn't that great on the wing when Cuba played here. I think he's still very one-dimensional on the wing and only seems to thrive during transition moments. Much like what happened against the US and when he played for Vancouver. But if it gets crowded through midfield, he lacks the ability to play well through the lines. Something Hoilett, David, Oso, Arfield do well enough.
My opinion is with our dodge backline, if we have someone starting for Bayern Munich and challenging one of the best fullbacks in the world in Alaba for minutes, it makes more sense. We also have a ton of cover at DM if he bombs forward with Piette, Kaye, Hutch, and Eustaquio, possibly Fraser as well.
