Alphonso Davies of Bayern Munich met rap star Drake and won a match against Lionel Messi. What was actually better?
Bayern Munich’s Alfonso Davies explained that his encounter with fellow Canadian and rap star Drake means more to him than the 8-2 victory over Lionel Messi and Barcelona in the 2020 Champions League quarter-finals.
“I would say meeting Drake, because I’ve heard him since I started listening to music,” Davis said at the press conference with the Canadian national team, with whom he played in the World Cup qualifiers in Costa Rica on Friday. . Drake is one of my idols and I love his music.

Regarding Messi, his performance was only playing against the world football player six times. “Unfortunately I didn’t get his shirt. Maybe he’s past that encounter with Drake after all,” the 21-year-old left-back joked.
As the third CONCACAF qualifying group, Davies & Co. currently have a good chance of leading Canada to the World Cup Finals for the first time since 1986. “The World Cup is one of the greatest things you can play as a footballer. Anything can happen in the situation we are in. We have what it takes to make it happen.”
