It went 4-0 and advanced to the semifinals, which will be played on Tuesday. The Argentine did not shine, but returned to celebrate goals. He has 8 in 5 games.
Now the game is to guess which superhero reference will make Lionel Messi when I score a goal in the United States. This Friday night, for the quarterfinals of the Leagues Cup, Inter Miami thrashed 4-0 at Charlotte FC with a goal from Rosario, who celebrated in style Spiderman his goal number 8 in 5 games in his new team. Thus, he will play the semifinal next Tuesday against Philadelphia, who beat Querétaro 2-1.
With good reason in these lands it is said that the clubs are above all the players, even those who marked great history. When the teams take to the field here, they shout for the shield. The hit that resonates is that of “my good friend.” But with Lionel Andrés Messi everything is different, you know. Tonight, 20 seconds into the game between Inter Miami and Charlotte, from all four sides of the picturesque DRV PNK Stadium, the “Messi/Messi/Messi”.
Everything revolves around Messi and it is fair that it be so. After all, it is generating a true revolution on and off the pitch. On the field of play, he greatly improved a team that ranks last in MLS. Externally, the institution that belongs to Jorge and José Mas and David Beckham (La Pulga entered the stadium with one of his daughters, Harper) does not stop billing and raising the price of its shares.
It was a flat, boring game. Leo was noticed with a couple of gears less than usual. The motives? The tight calendar, added to the heat and humidity. Messi hardly touched the ball, despite the fact that Lionel Scaloni was in one of the boxes. Still, there is no doubt, the coach of the Argentine National Team will summon him for the matches of South American Qualifiers September, against Ecuador (home) and Bolivia (visitor).
The good thing for Gerardo Martino is that Inter Miami can play well without relying on a stellar Messi.. This means that Tata has already given the team an identity. The locals quickly took the lead due to a penalty that Messi gave back to Josef Martínez and that the Venezuelan did not waste.
Inter then handled the ball without accelerating. Leo was far from the goal and little participatory. The striking fact is that he did not star in the play for the second goal either: Busquets enabled the right-back DeAndre Yedlin, who sent a pass back for the definition through the center of Robert Taylor, the Finn who has already accumulated 4 cries in the Leagues Cup.
The second half was very much like a farewell or tribute match. Charlotte did not find a way to discount and Inter handled the ball from side to side but without going deep. Messi continued with his license game: He ran little and was always far from the rival goal. Even so, in the few that he played he showed that he is the best in the world, of course.
And there was another goal against in the duel, as it had happened in the previous series against Dallas. This time, the one who crashed the ball was the French Adilson Malanda.
There was nothing to suggest that Leo would score because the feeling was that he didn’t feel like doing it: he was in his airplane mode version. Until he sped up on one and winked at another Marvel character. The Ecuadorian Leonardo Campana had several seconds to turn around in the area and enabled the Rosario, who alone touched the goal with his left foot for the celebration of his children in the stands.
Thus, Messi was closer to a new title, the first on North American soil. It is remembered that Leo accumulates 42 trophies in his monumental career and that he is only one away from reaching the maximum winner, his Brazilian friend Dani Alves, with 43.
