This past week, Lionel Messi expressed his happiness in playing for Miami, his new team, and his current brand of football that doesn’t focus on golden balls. But despite his lack of success, Messi has already achieved something thanks to his goals: the first title in Inter Miami history and the 44th of his career, making him the most successful male football player in history.

In Nashville, Randall Leal lost a match that seemed immaculate up until Inter’s last player, Victor Ulloa, made a mistake. The place fell as they carried on, and the porters received the order to turn around. During the practice phase, the game started off as a boxing fight because nobody could get the ball. Robert Taylor scored his first goal in minute 21 after exercising patience and taking possession of the ball.

The remainder of the first half saw Inter Miami control its tempo as it has done in the tournament’s last three games: with ball possession and a moderate tempo while trying to control the game through Sergio Busquets and Messi’s tempo changes, whose personal mark on him Dax McCarthy gradually began to erode.

Inter had nearly 60% (58.8%) of the possession in the first 45 minutes; they had 114 more complete passes than the home team, whose star player Hany Mukhtar vanished after coach Gary Smith decided to play him much further back than he typically plays in Major League Soccer.

Miami appeared to be a tired team despite playing in the best atmosphere of the tournament up until Messi’s sudden appearance of his trademark zurda from midfield to swat down Nashville’s right-wing position with barely 20 minutes left to play in the scheduled time.

From that point on, Miami regained territorial dominance. But ineffective. In fact, Nashville had a chance to take the lead in the 76th minute, but Mukhtar retreated outside and to the Inter’s left when he was alone in front of the goalkeeper.

Inter Miami managed to avoid the penalties, but Campana mishandled a clear-cut goal-scoring opportunity in the final play.

Messi scored 10 goals throughout the tournament and registered an assist in each game he played. After a shootout of penalties, the team coached by “Tata” Martino tied the Nashville SC team 1-1 and won the League Cup.

At the 23-minute mark, the Argentinean player scored the game’s opening goal with a shot from outside the penalty area at Nashville’s Geodis Park. As the first portion came to an end.

However, after a corner kick and a cabezazo from Fafá Picault, the match was tied at 57 minutes. Messi almost added a second goal, but his shot missed the post.

A penalty pitch with 10 kicks arrived at the conclusion of the regulation time and the discount period. Messi gave Inter Miami the lead with the first goal.

 Additionally, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets converted their penalties. Elliot Panicco made the final mistake for the Nashville SC, which dampened the pink enthusiasm for winning a championship for the first time.

With this victory, Inter Miami advances directly to the Concacaf League of Champions’ final eight teams.
