🇩🇪 Alphonso Davies sets up Harry Kane’s first Bayern goal. Davies started the Bundesliga season strong registering two assists against Werder Bremen. Notably, setting up an assist for England Captain Harry Kane. It is worth noting that Harry Kane’s Tottenham dynamic partner, Son Heung-Min, plays down the left-wing. At left fullback, we expect to see a thriving Phonzy and Kane link up play this season. Sorry Sonny, Kane left you for Canada’s greatest.
🇫🇷 Jonathan David opens his goal scoring account this season. Gameday 2, and JD registers a goal against FC Nantes. The Ottawa export is making a statement in this new season of Ligue1.

Also, Mourinho’s AS Roma looking at JD. That’s a move we would love to see.
