Lionel Messi Makes Impactful Return for Inter Miami in MLS Tie

Published

on

Lionel Messi made a significant return to the pitch for Inter Miami, helping secure a 2-2 tie against the Colorado Rapids in a Major League Soccer match.

Messi, who had been sidelined due to a hamstring issue, quickly made an impact in the second half, scoring a crucial goal and setting up his teammate Leo Afonso for another.

However, Cole Bassett of the Colorado Rapids dashed Inter Miami’s hopes of a victory with a late 88th-minute goal that leveled the score.

It was an eventful match, with Rafael Navarro of the Colorado Rapids scoring from a penalty kick late in the first half, putting his team ahead temporarily.

Despite Messi’s return and his immediate influence on the game, Inter Miami had to settle for a draw in the end.

The match was not without its off-field incidents, as two fans managed to breach security measures and step onto the field, likely in an attempt to get close to Messi for a selfie.

Inter Miami, already grappling with several injuries, faced further setbacks during the game, losing players like Leo Campana and Leo Afonso to potential injuries.

Inter Miami’s coach, Gerardo Martino, strategically managed his line-up, utilizing Messi and other experienced players like Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba from the bench to balance workload and fitness.

The team’s upcoming schedule is packed, with multiple matches in quick succession, including a crucial CONCACAF Champions Cup rematch against Monterrey.

Messi’s return to action is a welcome sight for Inter Miami fans and a boost for the team as they navigate a challenging stretch of games.
