Alphonso Davies failed to make it to the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup with Canada despite a two-goal lead at the break. In the 3-2 defeat to Haiti in the small hours of Sunday the Bayern youngster provided the assist for Jonathan David's opening goal in the 18th minute, before teammate Lucas Cavallini added a second just ten minutes later. After the break, however, the alleged underdogs from Haiti were able to turn the game around and they struck back with a goal from Duckens Nazon after just five minutes of the second half. A second followed from a Hervé Bazile penalty in the 70th minute, before Wilde-Donald Guerrier fired home the winner six minutes later. Haiti are now in the semi-finals of the competition for the first time.
