He put on a show for the crowd by scoring just before stoppage time. Messi made a lovely pass that was returned for a tap-in goal, giving his team a cushion goal to seal the victory.

Inter Miami CF has been energized by Messi during his brief tenure with the team. He has played in non-league games and helped the team win the Leagues Cup earlier this month. Since David Beckham founded Inter Miami in 2020, the championship trophy is the team’s first major victory. The superstar Argentine scored 10 goals during the competition, taking home the best player honor.

Inter Miami is no longer in last place in the MLS standings thanks to the victory over the New York Red Bulls. The team now has 21 points for the regular season, which moves them up to 14th in the Eastern Conference. With 19 points each, Toronto FC and the Colorado Rapids are tied for the fewest in MLS.

Inter Miami has some work to do to get in position for a playoff spot; they are 11 points behind ninth-place Chicago Fire FC. The top nine teams in each conference advance to the playoffs.

Messi has now scored in eight of his nine games with Inter Miami following his goal on Saturday. He currently has six assists and 11 goals for his new team.

This culminated a flawless evening for Inter Miami with Messi scoring his first official MLS goal in the 89th minute.

large crowd gathered in Times Square on Saturday to watch Messi play in his first MLS regular season game. When he scored, the crowd in the landmark cheered.

When Messi entered the game, people probably expected him to perform some sort of magic, but he has not had a lot of opportunities to score. Messi has been involved in some plays, including those in the penalty area, but he and his teammates haven’t been able to find a rhythm to set up a scoring opportunity. Even though Messi has been closely guarded for the entire 20 minutes he has been on the field, his team still leads 1-0. No shots have been successful for New York.

Following Messi’s ten minutes on the field, Martino made another substitution, replacing Facundo Faras with Benjamin Cremaschi. Messi’s MLS debut cost hundreds of dollars, and although it took some time, it was worth the wait. With his team leading 1-0, Messi made his first MLS appearance for Leonardo Campana in the 60th minute of the game.

New York hasn’t scored yet in the second half, but it has created several chances as Inter Miami appears unprepared defensively. Each of Andrés Reyes and Daniel Edelman’s attempts was stopped by Miami goalie Drake Callender. Tom Barlow had a clear shot inside the box, but Callender blocked it with his entire body, preventing New York from scoring. For the majority of the first ten minutes of the half, the Red Bulls have been attacking.

With Tom Barlow replacing Elias Manoel and Peter Stroud replacing Dru Yearwood, New York made some lineup adjustments to begin the second half.

Inter Miami leads 1-0 as both teams enter the locker rooms at the halfway point of the match thanks to a goal from Diego Gómez. Inter Miami had three shots and 55% of the first half’s possession. Five shots were taken by the New York Red Bulls, but none of them were successful.

After a handball call on David Ruz in the box, it appeared as though New York would have a chance to tie the score. The play was reviewed by VAR, which revealed that the ball struck his shoulder. The Red Bulls’ opportunity to score was eliminated when the penalty shot was taken away.

Inter Miami did not waste their chance after the Red Bulls missed a simple shot. Diego Gómez had a clear shot on goal and found the bottom right corner of the goal in the 37th minute to give his team the lead after a deflected free kick from Noah Allen. Leonardo Campana attempted an acrobatic left-footed shot in the box in the 41st minute, but Carlos Coronel made a save. It was almost a second goal after getting on the board.
