Has Drake CURSED Lionel Messi? Fans worried after rapper bets on Argentina to win FIFA World Cup 2022
DOHA, QATAR: Fans think Drake has 'cursed' Lionel Messi after he placed a bet of $1M in favor of Argentina to beat France in the World Cup final. Argentina will face France on Sunday, December 18, in what will be Messi's last World Cup game of his glittering career. Fans all over the world are hoping he will raise the cup at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar, having missed out on the prestigious trophy in 2014, when Argentina lost 1-0 to Germany.
Meanwhile, Rapper Drake has built a negative reputation for being a bad-luck charm as he is not good at predicting sporting winners. In a video posted on social media with a friend, he said, "I’ll take Argentina, he’ll take France. That will be a vibe," which has led fans to believe that Argentina could be hampered by the dreaded 'Drake curse'. The 'Drake curse' was in effect at UFC 281 when Israel Adesanya suffered a shocking defeat to Alex Pereira after Drake placed a bet on the former. Drake also placed a bet on Charles Leclerc winning the Spanish Grand Prix earlier this year, only for the Ferrari driver to suffer an engine failure during the race.
