Alphonso Davies has been ruled out of Canada’s Gold Cup squad due to an ankle injury, Canada Soccer has announced.
The left-back of Bayern Munich went into training earlier this week and is now on his way back to his club to begin his recovery.
Davies scored four goals and a team of best five assistants in 2021, including the World Cup qualifiers.
Ankle injury history
Davies missed significant time for Bayern Munich in 2020-21 with an ankle ligament injury and has previously also experienced knee problems, meaning the lower body pain is not new to the player.
The extent of this single problem has not yet been announced.
Canada Gold Cup Matches
The CONCACAF tournament starts on Saturday and lasts until 1 August.
Canada begin a group stage action against Martinique on Sunday before facing June 15 and Haiti on June 18.
