Alphonso Davies admits it was a "scary situation" when he picked up his hamstring injury while on Bayern Munich duty, but is confident he'll be fully fit for Canada's opening World Cup match on Nov. 23.

Davies picked up the hamstring strain in the 64th minute of Bayern Munich's 3-2 win over Hertha Berlin on Nov. 5. The club post-match said he would miss their last two matches of the Bundesliga before the World Cup, but added his participation in the competition was "not at risk."

Canada have pre-tournament matches against Bahrain in Manama on Nov. 11 and Japan in Dubai on Nov. 17 before they then open their World Cup against Belgium on Nov. 23.

Davies will be one of the star players at the competition and, speaking to a media roundtable on Wednesday, said he was certain he'd be fit and ready to start the tournament.
