Canadian superstar Drake lost a $300,000 bet on his country’s national team in the Copa America semifinal against Argentina. Despite his hopeful wager, Canada fell short with a 2-0 loss to the reigning world champions at New York’s MetLife Stadium on Tuesday night. Goals by Lionel Messi and Manchester City’s Julián Álvarez secured Argentina’s place in the final.

Earlier in the day, Drake had shared his bet slip on Instagram with the caption: “This could get Messi @stake.” He was expecting a potential payout of $2,880,000.00 if Canada had emerged victorious.

Following the defeat, Argentina advances to the final and will face the winner of the semifinal between Uruguay and Colombia at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, on Sunday, July 14. Meanwhile, Canada will compete in the third-place playoff against the loser of the aforementioned fixture.
