During the national team break he was drawn to Canadian universal Alphonso Davies, who works at Bayern, Germany, Germany. The Ghanaian-born Canadian won a qualifying match against Panama with a luxury goal, staged a victory and even got a message from a famous rapper.
The talented 20-year-old footballer Alphonso Davies has presented himself again. In the qualifying game for Canada, he scored one goal, his shot was also victorious and because of that, Canada edged Panama in qualifying. The Buduburam native’s goal was exemplary in many ways, and famed rapper Drake was keen to meet the team as well.
“Alphonso had a message from Drake. He wanted to meet the cabin,” National team coach John Herdman said after the game. However, there is no report on how the event ultimately unfolded. However, the game itself, which Canada handled, ended well, and in front of a full home crowd in Toronto it may have registered a key victory in the fight for the World Cup.

A moment of Canadian heritage.
