Canada is the latest victim of the ‘Drake Curse’ after losing to Belgium at the World Cup.

Those who believe in the ‘Drake curse’ now have fresh proof that the curse does exist following Canada’s 1-0 defeat by Belgium.

The Canada national team played their World Cup opener against Belgium in Group F on Wednesday but suffered a painful defeat despite dominating phases of the game.

Promising left-back Alphonso Davies could have given Canada their first World Cup goal with a penalty in the 10th minute of the game, but goalkeeper Thibault Courtois saved it.

The result made Canada the first World Cup team since 1978 to attempt at least 20 shots and a penalty and still not score.

However, some have claimed the source of the Maple Leafs’ despair is none other than Canadian artist Drake.

The “Drake Curse” has erupted multiple times over the course of various high profile sporting events after a team was publicly endorsed by the Canadian rapper.

This support usually comes in the form of a picture of Drake and a celebrity member of the team is posted in a picture with Drake or posts himself in the team’s jersey.

The Canadian team took the field to Drake’s song “Started from the bottom”.

Davies also posted a photo of Drake holding his Instagram Story wearing his national team shirt days before the tournament.

It is also noted that Drake is a well-known player who has lost a lot on multiple bets lately.

He recently lost over $2 million betting on former UFC champion Israel Adesanya to defend his title against Alex Pereira.

He also recently placed a $649,000 losing bet on an accumulator with Barcelona to win El Clasico against Real Madrid and Arsenal to beat Leeds.

After the game, the Canadian players received praise from both the media and their coach.

Canada manager John Herdman shared a similar reaction to the game in his post-game comments.

“Good performance by the team. Really proud, really proud,” Herdman said.

“I think the fans in the stadium can feel that we are a football country. They put their energy into it for 90 minutes. It felt like we were the home team.’

“Real football crowd. And I’m really proud of the boys, but at the end of the day we have to get points.”

“We’re going into this game against Croatia with a bit of fire in our stomachs. We’re hungry, we’re even more hungry. We know we deserve to be here and it’s about time. It’s time for us to move on.’

Fox commentator Alexis Lalas also praised the Canadians’ efforts

“You should be incredibly proud of this achievement. Despite the defeat, they were the better team.”

“And finally they got hosed down when it came to the missed call.”
