Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies netted a stunning solo goal for Canada against Panama on Wednesday that prompted rapper Drake to request a meeting.
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.

Canada fell behind 1-0 after just five minutes to the side closest to them in the race for third in the CONCACAF table – the region’s final World Cup play-off qualifying spot.
With consecutive draws entering the game, that early goal concession could have been taken as an ominous sign.
However, Canada pulled out a victory with the help of Davies and are now on 10 points, two clear of Panama for third.
