After defeating Cincinnati on penalties on Thursday, August 24, Inter Miami has also scheduled a final against Houston Dynamo for September 27 in the US Open Cup. This gives Messi the opportunity to win a second trophy in his MLS career. The team has made such an amazing turnaround under former Barcelona manager Gerardo “Tata” Martino that a reporter has even claimed that their recent matches appear staged.
Before the Leagues Cup final triumph, Beckham made the following statement: “Every time Leo [Messi] scores a goal, every time Busi [Sergio Busquets] makes a pass, every time Jordi [Alba] makes a run, people ask, ‘Is there a fix?’
Since it’s similar to a movie, it’s the highest praise anyone can offer these players. It’s heartwarming to watch these players perform since everything about their work is exquisite. Apart from the field, everything about them as people, even their demeanor, is exquisite.
After Golden Balls had cautioned that it might take the magician some time to adjust, Messi has shown Beckham’s cautious approach to the Argentine’s debut at Inter Miami to be unfounded.
At the time of his signing, Beckham stated: “No matter how good he is, no matter what his stature is, he and Sergio are going to need time to adapt. We have to be patient, even though they might surprise us and we might start winning every game, Messi and company will next play the New York Red Bulls away in league play, where Messi will likely make his Major League Soccer debut.
