Inter Miami defeated the Union 4-1 in a Leagues Cup semifinal on Tuesday night when Messi blasted a strike from thirty yards past 3 defenders of Philadelphia in the twentieth minute, delighting soccer fans who had paid a significant amount for passes in the Philadelphia region. Messi’s league right now is MLS. With ticket prices surging beyond $1,000 on the secondary market, the 7-time Ballon d’Or winner got his 9th goal in 6 games with his latest side before a throng that approached 20,000 spectators. There weren’t many grievances.
Not from 3 Union ticket collectors who switched in their home team’s kit for Messi attire for the evening. Or the people waiting in line for Messi’s jerseys, the authenticity of which cannot be confirmed, and the people in need of Messi fries at the food truck.
Inter Miami’s Celebratory Victory With Messis’s Goal: A Treat To The Eyes
And most definitely not from this Union, who, while naturally wanting to win, also loaded the lockers and garnered more global attention in a single night as compared to any other game they have ever played. When Lionel was unveiled, the crowd exploded, and they did so again when Messi beat diving goalie Andre Blake. He leaped in joy as he rushed with his hands outstretched and then pounded the air. Rest was essentially incidental.
Inter Miami also had goals from Josef Martinez and Jordi Alba in the initial half, while David Ruiz made his score in the latter half. Inter Miami will take on either Mexican or Nashville club Monterrey in the LC final on Saturday. For Philadelphia, Alejandro Bedoya got scores in the 2nd half. They have a fantastic connection with the Eagles, and many of them will be present that night, but the event was significant and has a lot at stake, said Sugarman. They wanted to win the trophies, so when Jim said that there was where they’d win, they’d be there to compete.
