The MLS soccer franchise Inter Miami’s squad has been a nightmare for the rivals this season. David Beckham’s club has the services of footballing greats Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba. The League Cup defending champions are on a dream run this summer. Their last match against New England Revolutions was at the Gillette Stadium, the legendary Tom Bardy’s home stadium for a long time.

Since the Argentine arrived in 2023, Miami’s Chase Stadium has been fully packed with all season tickets sold beforehand. Not only that, but their merchandise sales have also reached record rates. Messi’s stardom worldwide has attracted the attention of celebrities from different genres like Lebron James, Leonardo DiCaprio, Selena Gomez, etc visit the the stadium to witness the left footer’s magic with their own eyes.

Most recently, Sporting KC hosted Messi and co. at the Arrowhead Stadium in the presence of more than 72,000 fans. The game at the Super Bowl champions’ home was the soccer game with the most number of attendance in the city. A large number of fans from different parts of the country gathered to see the World Cup champion weave magic with the ball.

The 9th league match of the season was played between Inter Miami and New England Revolution. In front of 65.612 fans, Lionel Messi smashed the home side who are presently sitting at the bottom half of the points table. Despite leading in the first 30 minutes of the game, La Pulga pulled out the equalizer in the 32nd minute from a fine assist by Robert Taylor. 

Messi displayed his vintage style after his friend Luis Suarez stepped on the pitch. A picture-perfect assist from his former FC Barcelona teammate, Sergio Busquets, helped Messi to get his brace. Later a tap-in from the 8-time Ballon d’Or champion found B.Cremaschi who served the ball to Suarez for a fine finish by the Uruguyran Striker.
