Lionel Messi is definitely having a good time in the US. The Argentine superstar is already on the verge of winning his first title with Inter Miami, who beat Philadelphia Union 4-1 to book a place in the 2023 Leagues Cup final.
Leo once again found the net, scoring a long-range effort to boast nine goals in six appearances, comfortably leading the tournament’s scoring table. Messi has scored in every game he’s played for the Herons so far.
The 36-year-old received a pass from Josef Martinez, who received an ugly challenge in the build-up, and even though he was yards away from the goal, he managed to extend Inter Miami’s lead.
