Drake was in London this weekend to play in front of tens of thousands of fans as he headlined Wireless festival at Finsbury Park, but that is unlikely to be the moment he most savours from this trip to the capital.

Not only did Drake drop a hit filled set on Friday night (GMS was there, in fact) but he was able to cap off a fine few days by slotting a penalty past former Chelsea striker and Stamford Bridge icon Didier Drogba in the balmy weather.

The hip hop superstar is a pretty big fan of football - previously convincing Jermain Defoe to sign for his hometown team, Toronto FC - and demonstrated as much when he uploaded an Instagram video with Drogba on Saturday.


Who should Chelsea sign this summer? Have your say by signing up now to become a GMS writer:

With Drogba positioned between the posts, Drake stepped up and slotted a penalty past his (pretty lame) attempt to save the ball and into the bottom left corner - just as the Ivorian did for Chelsea in the 2012 Champions League final.

Sure, it was hardly the Allianz Arena and the most coveted club prize in European football, but Drake’s successful conversion seemed to mean just as much to him as Drogba’s most memorable moment for Chelsea.

Drogba, who left Chelsea for a second time this summer, has just been replaced by Radamel Falcao at the Bridge and what the Blues would give for the Colombian to repeat the feats of the veteran centre-forward.


Chelsea have signed Falcao to replace Drogba. Will be able to? Let us know below!
