Mario Balotelli Gives Drake Soccer Shout Out, Dedicates Game-Winning Goal to Rapper Friend


Mario Balotelli is back on top, but can you guess where he started?

On Sunday, Balotelli scored the game-winning goal in Italy’s 2-1 victory over Mexico. He was so excited about the 78th-minute strike that he went on Twitter and dedicated the goal to one of his friends: Drake.

We’re not sure why Balotelli dedicated his feat to the Canadian rapper. The two are known to be friendly, and Drake shouted out Balotelli in a song he released last year called “Enough Said.” We can only guess that the catchy song lyric took hold of Balotelli’s fingers and used them to do its bidding.
