Drake hung out with Alphonso Davies and other soccer stars in Toronto after last night's win
Canada's national soccer team is now one step closer to competing in next year's FIFA World Cup thanks to a decisive win at BMO Field in Toronto on Wednesday night — one that is being attributed in large part to young left-back Alphonso Davies.
Fans all over the world lost it last night when Davies, 20, delivered a spectacular goal late in the first half, tying the match against Panama and ultimately pushing Canada towards an eventual 4-1 victory.

People at the game bars screamed and cheered for the Bayern Munich star, as did people at bars and, presumably, fans watching from home. Meanwhile, Twitter users flooded the social network with clips of the impressive goal (that you really must see to believe) and hailed Davies as one of the greatest soccer players in existence.
Toronto-based global superstar Drake, for his part, simply shot the guy a congratulatory text message, which is such a Drake thing to do.
Coach John Herdman, head of the Canadian men's national soccer team, told reporters during a press conference after the game that Davies "just got a text from Drake."
Not only did Davies get props from Drake, he got an invitation: "He wants to meet the boys," said Herdman of the chart-topping recording artist and avid sports fan.

What Drake wants, Drake gets, and within hours the rapper was being tagged in photos with players from the Canadian national soccer team.
Not that I don’t like you Drake but please…stay a bit away from Canada Soccer team…we don’t need the Drake curse…just stay with your Raptors or even Maple Leafs, that will be just fine!! Much appreciated….Thanks 🙏🏼 #CANMNT #RoadToQatar2022 https://t.co/VBR4Vr69r4— Seb (The Rock🤘🏼) 🦊 (@SebTheRock) October 14, 2021
Davies himself was undoubtedly stoked to meet Drizzy, however, based on his reaction last year to simply being followed by the artist on Instagram.
Hey, game recognizes game, even when it's a different game.
