Drake asks to meet Alphonso Davies after Bayern star’s stunning solo goal for Canada

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

Davies sprinted half the length of the field to steal the ball from an unsuspecting Sam Adekugbe before jetting into the box and leaving goalkeeper Luis Mejia flat-footed with his low shot. The 66th-minute effort put Canada ahead 2-1 in a pivotal World Cup qualifying match, with the hosts ultimately pulling away for a 4-1 victory.

Drake apparently came away impressed by the skill of his countryman, and Canada head coach John Herman relayed the details of their conversation.
