Messi scored his tenth goal in the United States with a beautiful shot from around sixteen. Great numbers, although it must be noted that the resistance is on a different level than the European competitions in which the Argentine played a large part of his career.
However, American fans love it, and Major League Soccer is very happy, because pictures from that competition are spreading across the Internet around the world and that only means more advertising. Messi’s goal – which, unlike PSG, leaves a delightful impression – was not direct enough to win the League Cup.
Messi put Inter Miami ahead 1-0, but Nashville equalized in the second half through Vava Pico. The score was also 1-1 on the scoreboard after the final whistle, making penalties necessary. It became a long series of penalties (10-9), where even the goalkeepers had their turn.
Drake Callender scored and saved, making him Inter Miami’s big hero alongside Messi.
