Watch Alphonso Davies ‘END Youri Tielemans’ career’ as he leaves Belgium star on backside with quick feet at World Cup

    FOOTBALL fans concluded that Canada star Alphonso Davies “ended Youri Tielemans’ career” with a sumptuous piece of skill at the World Cup.

    Roberto Martinez’s men somehow edged past the North American underdogs 1-0 on Wednesday evening despite being thoroughly outplayed.

    And while Davies, 22, did miss a penalty early on for his side, he was still one of the best players on the pitch.

    His superb technical prowess was typified by a moment in which he left Tielemans, 25, on his backside.

    The Bayern Munich winger flew down the left flank before chopping back inside with a lovely flick.

    And it sold Leicester man Tielemans all ends up as he crumbled to the floor.

    The camera then caught Davies flying past the Belgian as he laid flat out on the grass.

    The clip did the rounds online and people were quick to poke fun at just how silly Davies made Tielemans look.

    Reacting on social media, one person said: “He’s just ended Tielemans career.”

    Another added: “Alphonso Davies absolutely ruined Tielemans there, oh my word.”

    A third said: “Alphonso Davies just COOKED Tielemans 😭🇨🇦.”

    And an Arsenal fan, whose club have been linked with a move for the midfielder, hilariously reacted: “I don’t want us to go for him in January now as I’ll never be able to get that image out of my head.”

    Next up for Canada is a clash with Croatia on Sunday, while Belgium take on Morocco earlier in the afternoon.

    And Martinez knows his side will have to improve significantly if they are to go deeper in the tournament.

    He said: “It was the worst performances in tournament we’ve had. But was it the worst game? No, because we won in the World Cup. 

    “It was such a difficult game and Canada were much better than us.  We had to show another side of our play and I’m delighted we won through grit. 

    “The victory is more important than playing well but we need to play better and grow.

    “This tournament is going to make you develop and grow as the tournament goes on. If you do that by winning games, it’s an incredible advantage.

    “Today we didn’t win by our normal talent and quality on the ball, but you don’t win in the World Cup if you don’t do the other side of the game.”
