Antoine Griezmann confirms meaning behind THAT celebration

The France international is seemingly a big fan of the rapper Drake.

FRANCE STRIKER ANTOINE Griezmann has confirmed that his memorable goal celebration — the one we’ve six times at Euros 2016 now — is a homage to the rapper Drake and in particular, his ‘Hotline Bling’ song.

Griezmann has even shown his appreciation by tweeting the rapper with a video of his head superimposed onto the Drake’s body in the video for the song.

The Atletico Madrid star has plenty to celebrate, of course, given that he has led France to the Euro 2016 final with six goals, including two in their semi-final win over Germany on Thursday.
