The 19-year-old Davies, who was born in a Ghanaian refugee camp and raised in Edmonton, has won 17 caps for Canada.

Lawrence started two of three matches for Paris Saint-Germain, which stands second in the French league. The 24-year-old fullback/midfielder from Brampton, Ont., also had two assists in Canada’s 3-0 win over New Zealand at an international tournament in China.
