The Bayern Munich star was forced to watch his international team-mates from afar due to a heart condition

Alphonso Davies went crazy on a Twitch live stream during Canada's 2-0 win over Honduras in World Cup qualifying on Thursday, with his voice escalating to a scream as international team-mate Jonathan David chipped the opposition goalkeeper.

Davies, 21, would ordinarily have been on the pitch with Canada, but he has been sidelined by a heart condition following his recovery from Covid-19.

He nonetheless brought the passion as he cheered on the squad from afar.

"Golazo! Jonny!" shouted Davies in regards to David's superb finish.

Canada's World Cup aspirations

There's plenty for Davies and his country to be excited about right now, as they top CONCACAF in World Cup qualifying and are still unbeaten through nine matches.

Davies and David are the shining stars of a new generation of Canadian talent who appear ready to take the nation to new heights.

Canada has only played at one World Cup in their history, back in 1986, and have never scored a goal in the competition. That could soon change, however.

Below is the current CONCACAF table through the first nine games:
