Lionel Messi shines in Inter Miami’s thrilling 3-3 draw with Sporting KC

Lionel Messi scored a goal with a magnificent strike from outside the penalty area, in addition to providing an assist, in Inter Miami’s 3-3 victory over Sporting KC on Saturday night.

For the occasion, the match was held at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL, in front of a crowd of more than 72,000 people, making it the 3rd largest crowd in MLS history.

Messi gave Inter a 2-1 lead in the 51st minute, but Erik Thommy tied the game with his second goal of the game a few minutes later.

Luis Suarez made the difference by scoring the winning goal in the 71st minute.

Diego Gomez also had a strong game in the winning side with a goal and an assist on the winning goal.

Messi had a great chance in the 27th minute with a left-footed shot from 12 yards, but it was smothered by Kansas City’s Tim Melia.

Messi’s free kick in the 41st minute, from 25 yards, narrowly missed the right corner.

The crowd was 20,000 more than Sporting KC’s previous record, set in 2010 in a friendly match against Manchester United.

A third defeat in a row for TFC
