Bayern Munich's Alphonso Davies is among the headline acts in Canada's squad for the 2022 World Cup.

Veteran midfielder Atiba Hutchinson is set to captain Les Rouges at their first World Cup since 1986. FC Porto's Stephen Eustaquio and Lille's Jonathan David were other standouts named in John Herdman's roster Sunday.

Doneil Henry didn't make the squad after suffering an injury while warming up for Friday's 2-2 draw with Bahrain, opening up a seat for midfielder Liam Fraser on the plane. Theo Corbeanu and Raheem Edwards also missed out.

Goalkeeper James Pantemis was called in after Milan Borjan's usual deputy Maxime Crepeau broke his leg during the MLS Cup final.

Canada kicks off its World Cup campaign against Belgium on Nov. 23. Meetings with Croatia and Morocco round off its group commitments.
