  • Drake made huge bet worth £300k
  • Backed Canada and made Lionel Messi jibe
  • Argentina respond in hilarious fashion

WHAT HAPPENED?

Drake placed an extraordinary bet earlier this week, as he revealed he had placed a $300k wager on Canada. Had they been victorious, he would have pocketed $2.8m (£2m), but Argentina won 2-0 thanks to goals from Julian Alvarez and Lionel Messi.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

Argentina’s X account clearly knew of Drake’s wager and chose to send some shade the rapper’s way. Of course, Drake has been engaged in a beef with Kendrick recently, although many fans and critics have made it clear that, just like with his bet, the Canadian has been defeated.

WHAT ARGENTINA POSTED

Argentina made reference to Kendrick’s immediately iconic diss track ‘Not Like Us’ after full-time. The official AFA account posted a picture of Messi and his Argentina team-mates celebrating with the caption: “Not like us, not with us.”

WHAT NEXT?

Argentina will now prepare for the Copa America final on Sunday evening, where they will face the winner of the second semi-final between Uruguay and Colombia. The loser of the game will play Canada in the third-place play-off 24 hours prior.
