Drake asks to meet Alphonso Davies after scoring ridiculous goal for Canada

0


World-renowned musical artist Drake texted Alphonso Davies to set up a reunion following the Bayern Munich star’s stunning solo goal for Canada against Panama on Wednesday.

Davies sprinted halfway to steal the ball from an unsuspecting Sam Adekugbe before throwing himself into the box and leaving goalkeeper Luis Mejia caught off guard with his low shot.

The 66th-minute effort gave Canada a 2-1 lead in a crucial World Cup qualifier, with the hosts ultimately retiring to a 4-1 victory.

Drake apparently walked away impressed with his compatriot’s skill, and Canada’s head coach John Herman relayed the details of their conversation.

Canada fell 1-0 behind after just five minutes against the team closest to them in the race for third place in the CONCACAF standings – the last qualifying place for the World Cup qualifiers of the region.

With back-to-back draws coming into play, that early goal concession could have been seen as an ominous sign.

However, Canada secured a victory with help from Davies and are now 10 points ahead, two ahead of Panama for third place.

On a personal note for Davies, recognition of Drake as a world superstar will be greatly appreciated, as the Bayern full-back has built up a large online following on social media. Davies currently has 4.5 million TikTok followers, 4.1 million Instagram followers and nearly 300,000 Twitter followers.
