Canadian rapper Drake suffered a significant financial loss after making a bet on Argentina to win the World Cup in Qatar. Despite the team ultimately emerging victorious, they did not win within the regular 90 minutes, causing Drake to lose the million dollars he had placed on their victory.
This outcome is particularly notable because Drake has a reputation for not having much luck when it comes to betting, leading some of his fans to refer to it as "Drake's Curse." During the match, Argentina had a two-goal lead over France, but the latter team managed to equalize before the end of the regular 90 minutes.
This meant that Drake's bet was unsuccessful, despite Argentina ultimately winning the title after extra time and a penalty shootout. Despite the disappointment of losing the bet, Argentina's victory was still a cause for celebration among the country's fans, as they won their third World Cup title and became world champions once again.
