Friday night, Canada opened up the 2017 Gold Cup against French Guiana and they won 4-2 to earn three points.

The biggest star of the night was Canada's Alphonso Davies who scored two goals in his Gold Cup debut.
Oh yeah, did we forgot to mention, the Whitecaps player is also just 16-years-old.

Man of the match, without a doubt, has to be Alphonso Davies. Scores the winner and an insurance goal. Lots of honourable mentions though...— Canucks Abroad (@Canucks_Abroad) July 8, 2017
