Alphonso Davies showed that he's not just good as a full back, as he scored a brilliant goal for Canada in their World Cup qualifier against Panama.
Davies is considered one of the world's best full backs, despite being just 20-years-old, although the Bayern Munich star did happily admit Luke Shaw is 'clear,' earlier this year.
The Canada player has incredible pace and often attacks from deep, whilst he's also improved defensively over the couple of years for his club.
However on international duty on Wednesday night, Davies was playing up front, as John Herdman's team attempted to qualify for next year's World Cup, and he scored an amazing goal.
Davies showed his full pace and skill to keep the ball on the pitch before going round a defender and bamboozling the goalkeeper.

Canada had gone behind through Ronaldo Blackburn's goal in the fifth minute, before getting level just before the half hour mark through an own goal.
It was 1-1 when Davies made his telling contribution to the match, and it really turned the tide as the Canadians went on to win relatively easily.
After the incredible goal from the Bayern star made it 2-1, Tajon Buchanan and Jonathan David made it 4-1 before full time.

The result put Canada third in the group, behind Mexico and USA, which would be enough to get them to Qatar next winter, if they manage to stay in that position.
Panama had just come off the back of a huge win against the US on Sunday, and had occupied a top three position before the loss.
Their result, coupled with Costa Rica losing to USA, means they're currently in fourth place, which would mean a play off against a team from another continent.
