Argentine soccer fans mock Drake after losing Copa America bet – NBC Sports Bay Area & California

Argentina’s national football team took on musician Drake on Tuesday after knocking out Canada in the semi-finals of the Copa America.

Before the game Drake said Posted His Instagram story features a photo of him betting $300,000 on Canada to beat Argentina, which would result in a payout of $2.88 million.

Argentina, however, proved to be too strong for Canada, as expected, with Julian Alvarez and Lionel Messi both scoring in the 2-0 win to secure a place in the final of the tournament.

After the match, Argentina’s English-language account posted a photo on social media platform X with the caption “Not like us, not with us”. This was a reference to Kendrick Lamar’s diss track against Drake, titled “Not Like Us”.

Lamar’s song was released on May 4 and has been streamed 470 million times on Spotify and counting. The music video on YouTube, released on July 4, has been viewed 42 million times and counting.

Argentina will be chasing a 16th Copa America title when they play the final on Sunday, July 14.

La Albiceleste will play for the cup against Colombia or Uruguay, who are also chasing their sixteenth victory in the tournament.



The US national team’s hopes of advancing were dashed when they were eliminated from the Copa America tournament after a 1-0 defeat to Uruguay.
