More Messi show, Inter Miami advances in the cup
The Argentine has already reached seven goals on the season
Messi’s start to the season in an Inter Miami jersey is dreamy. Coming off five goals in his first three matches, the World Champion was also decisive in the pyrotechnic challenge, valid for the round of 16 of the American Leagues Cup against FC Dallas.
The former Barcelona and PSG star scored two goals (4-4 the final), thus extending the challenge to penalty kicks where he did not miss his penalty shot, thus helping Inter Miami detach the pass to the quarterfinals where it will face the winner of the challenge between Charlotte FC and Houston Dynamo. Of note, with 10′ left in regulation time, Inter Miami was down 2-4. Then an own goal by Farfan and Messi’s second goal brought the challenge to a draw and, subsequently, to penalties (5-3 in favor of the team led by the Argentine star).
Another extraordinary game by the Argentine, who thus rose to seven goals on the season (three consecutive doubles). The absolute idol of the Inter Miami crowd, Messi is playing at a stratospheric level, silencing those who thought he had emigrated to the United States to hibernate. The adventure in MLS could not have started better for the magical Pulce.
