Canadian rapper, Drake, has lost his $1 million dollar bet on Argentina to win the 2022 World Cup against France within 90 minutes of regulation time.
Drake who is rooting for the South American team, had staked the whooping amount on a straight-win ticket for Argentina – implying that they have to defeat France within regulation time.
However, two goals from Kylian Mbappe helped France repel Argentina’s first-half lead dragging the match into extra time.
The Argentines had gotten a comfortable 2-goal lead in the first half after Lionel Messi’s 23rd-minute penalty and Angel DiMaria’s beautiful sitter 13 minutes later.
With the result, the ‘Drake curse’ phenomenon appears to be far from over as the rapper’s history of wrongfully predicting sports outcomes remains unchanged.
The four-time Grammy award winner has often been accused of cursing athletes and sports teams he’s supported in recent years.
