Canadian sports analyst throws IPAD in furious defense of Alphonso Davies after World Cup exit

Canadian sports analyst Sid Seixeiro throws his IPAD in furious defense of Alphonso Davies after ‘disgusting, low class’ criticism in Canada of Bayern Munich star with his team losing all three games at the World Cup

Sports analyst Sid Seixeiro threw an iPad in the Breakfast Television TV studios in Canada in a stunning defense of Alphonso Davies after he was criticized by his country’s press.

Canada crashed out of the World Cup with three straight defeats against Belgium, Croatia and Morocco on its return to the tournament – its first time in the competition since 1986.

An article in CBC Sports questioned whether Bayern Munich star Davies’ high profile helped the Canada side and Seixeiro was furious at any suggestion Davies was a negative influence.

The 22-year-old sustained a hamstring injury shortly before the tournament in Qatar but recovered in time to play in all three games and scored in their Croatia defeat – his country’s first World Cup goal in men’s soccer.

‘Believe it or not, [Alphonso Davies] has taken heat… and not just from any section of the media, it’s from the Canadian media,’ Seixeiro said. ‘Canada Soccer hasn’t earned the right to criticize a kid like this, we don’t have the media smart enough to criticize a kid like this, because most of the media over there watch soccer once every two or four years and then want a free trip to write about it.

‘Canada Soccer can barely run a fast food place, let alone a soccer federation… they’re lucky Alphonso Davies, one of the best players in the world in his position, are representing Canada.’

Davies had been criticized for not speaking to any media after each of Canada’s games but Seixeiro didn’t view it as an issue – instead rounding on the Canada soccer media itself.

‘I don’t care if he talks to the media, who wanted a free trip, after the game, I don’t care whether he wears an earring, he’s there injured, he’s there hurt, he scored the first [World Cup] goal in his country’s history on the men’s side Sunday, we’re lucky to have this kid.

‘Any media member who thinks differently is an absolute idiot, and go cover anything else, because this is way over your head. 

‘This kid is the best thing that ever happened to Canadian soccer, and this garbage is setting the sport back years, because we don’t know what we’ve got in this country when we have it. 

‘We’re just used to criticizing because that’s what gets you the clicks, whether you’re Bruce Arthur or this clown from CBC who I’m paying his salary. I don’t care who it is, we need to respect this guy, I don’t want to hear a single criticism. 

‘Never, never rip this kid again, it’s disgusting, it’s low class, and we need to be better as a country.’

Davies, for his part, put out a statement shortly after Canada lost the final game to Morocco saying the future for the team is positive. 

He said on social media: ‘Very proud of this team for everything we’ve achieved together.

Davies' goal was one of two that Canada got at the World Cup but the other was an own goal

‘We didn’t get the results we wanted at the World Cup, but the future for football in this country is bright. 

‘Thank you to all the travelling support for coming all the way to Qatar to support us every step of the way.’

Canada is a co-host of the 2026 World Cup alongside the United States and Mexico, so qualifies automatically.
