In a moment of brilliance, Alphonso Davies powered Canada closer to a spot at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The end result was a 4-1 win for the Red and White over Panama, leaving them in the third qualifying position after six matches played in qualifying. 'Caps goalkeeper Maxime Crépeau earned the victory, going unbeaten in his three starts during this round, including road matches in Mexico and Jamaica.
Davies, the Whitecaps FC BMO Academy product, made the defining play in the 66th minute, speeding forward, barely keeping the ball in from the touchline, and finishing bottom corner to give Canada a 2-1 lead.
It was a tough start for Canada, with Panama opening the scoring just five minutes in.
But Canada were never going to lose this match. They tied it in the 28th minute on an own goal from a Davies corner kick.
After Davies gave them the 2-1 lead, Tajon Buchanan then headed it in to make it 3-1.
Jonathan David finally rounded out the scoring with a close range finish to make it 4-1.
Next up for Canada will be two home matches in Edmonton, Alberta against Costa Rica on November 12 and Mexico on November 16.
