Alphonso Davies may just be getting a taste of success in the Bundesliga, but the Bayern Munich standout is already running roughshod over the minnows of CONCACAF.

Canada sits safe of relegation in the CONCACAF Nations League after Davies hit a bullet inside the near post in a 1-0 win over Cuba on Tuesday in Havana.

His ninth minute goal power the Canucks to a 1-0 win which might’ve been more lopsided had Doneil Henry not been sent off in the 55th minute.

Davies, 18, didn’t score in Saturday’s leg north of the border, as Canada was led by a Junior Hoilett hat trick in a 6-0 thumping of Cuba. Jonathan Osorio had a goal and two assists in that one.

He now has four goals and eight assists in 15 caps, which is nice.

Elsewhere, 10-man Haiti drew Curacao 1-1. Curacao beat the Haitians 1-0 at home on Saturday.
