A Stunned Alphonso Davies Was Mic'd Up For MLS All-Star Game And He Was A Massive Fanboy

Alphonso Davies is known as one of the best full-backs in world football but back in 2018, the relatively unknown teenager featured in his first MLS All-Star game - and he was completely taken aback by the occasion.

The Canadian teenager, who was 17 at the time, played for Vancouver Whitecaps when he was selected to feature in the league's mid-year event, where fans and the league pick the top players to face off against a European heavyweight.

He would come up against Serie A champions Juventus at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and organisers decided to mic him up throughout to give people a chance to experience the annual game from the ground.

Davies, who had agreed to join Bayern Munich in a £22 million deal just weeks earlier, admired the stadium, teased the cameraman and even told Juventus full-back Alex Sandro that he was overpowered on FIFA.

Oh, and we can't forget the moment he was brought on in the 32nd minute. "I'm on TV; Momma, we made it!"

This is just so refreshing to see. Davies was clearly just enjoying every moment of the night, acting like a fanboy on every occasion possible.

Take a look at the footage posted by Major League Soccer's official Twitter account below.

In front of 72,317 people inside Atlanta United's stadium, Juventus went on to beat the MLS All Stars 5-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in normal time but it was Davies' performance that grabbed the headlines.

And of course, his antics on the mic.

As we all know, the supremely talented full-back has gone on to become one of the best full-backs in world football, but things could have been very different if he had joined Swansea City in 2017.

That's right. The Canadian international could have plied his trade in the Premier League at the time, with Swansea very keen on signing the pacey youngster.

Then-Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson, who was capped 52 times by Wales, recommended Swansea to sign Davies during his spell in charge.

However, a potential transfer to Swansea collapsed because of work permit issues.

Thoughts on Davies' mic'd up footage from the MLS All-Star game?
