Drake, a Canadian musician, has predicted that Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, will overcome France on Sunday, December 18, 2022, in the FIFA World Cup final.
The Canadian music icon is known for placing large bets on major sporting events, and he has now placed a wager on Argentina defeating France in the World Cup final.
The news comes after video of Drake discussing Sunday’s final between Argentina and France appeared on social media on Saturday while sporting the jersey of Serie A club Napoli.
“He’ll take France; I’ll take Argentina.” Drake was heard saying in the three-second clip, which appeared to be filmed in a studio with a pal. “That will be a vibe,” he was heard adding.
Although specifics regarding the amount of his stake have not yet been disclosed, it is anticipated that it would be as high as he typically would wager given that he has previously placed bets with big sums ranging from $500,000 to $1 million.
Numerous teams and sportsmen are losing forthcoming sporting events either after they have come into contact with Drake or after he decides to place a bet on them, causing the “Drake curse” to quickly become a sensation in sports.
Rapper and singer Aubrey Drake Graham is a Canadian. She was born on October 24, 1986.
Drake, a significant personality in modern popular music, is credited with making singing and R&B influences more common in hip hop.
He became well-known for playing Jimmy Brooks in the CTV adolescent drama Degrassi: He then pursued a career in music, releasing his debut mixtape Room for Improvement in 2006 after appearing on The Next Generation (2001-08).
Before joining Young Money Entertainment, he released the mixtapes Comeback Season (2007) and So Far Gone (2009).
What Is Drake’s Curse?
The “Drake curse” initially gained notoriety in 2016 after the Golden State Warriors, who had won 73 regular-season games and had surpassed Michael Jordan’s 72-10 Chicago Bulls’ record, lost the NBA Finals 4-3 despite being up 3-1.
No club had ever lost Finals series while leading 3-1 in NBA history up until that point.
The second notable instance of the “Drake curse” occurred as he left the ring alongside Conor McGregor for his lightweight match against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Two of the finest lightweights in UFC history squared off in the fight, and many predicted that McGregor would prevail.
Instead, Nurmagomedov finished the fight in the fourth round.
Drake placed a wager on Kamaru Usman, the dominant UFC welterweight champion, just in 2022. Usman controlled the battle for the first four rounds before being shockingly knocked out in the last one.
In the El Clasico derby, which Real Madrid ultimately won 3-1, Drake also picked Barcelona to defeat Real Madrid but didn’t happen.
The rapper has “cursed” a number of teams or sportsmen with his associations and bets, and he has now set his sights on Argentina.
FIFA World Cup Final
On Sunday, December 18, 2022, in the evening at the Al Bayt stadium, Argentina will play France in the 2022 FIFA World Cup final.
Lionel Messi would like to win the title he nearly missed in 2014 as Argentina fell to Germany in the championship match, losing 1-0.
Les Blues, who won the coveted gold trophy in style by defeating Croatia four years ago in Russia, are currently attempting to successfully defend their global championship.
Argentina is poised to win the World Cup. Lionel Messi enters the Lusail Stadium for his second World Cup final with a glimmer of optimism, a hope shared by all Argentineans and Messi’s supporters worldwide.
