As he leads Inter Miami to their first-ever championship, LIONEL MESSI writes history.
Lionel Messi has only been at Inter Miami for one month, but he is already showcasing his skills in America.
The Argentine international shone in the Leagues Cup final last night in Tennessee, helping Inter Miami win its first championship in club history.
Inter Miami defeated Nashville on penalties following a 1-1 stalemate at halftime thanks to a goal by Messi. Both teams played in a tough match, but after a tense shootout, the visitors prevailed.
With ten goals in seven games, Messi finished the Leagues Cup campaign as the competition’s top performer.
With the Leagues Cup victory, Messi currently has 44 victories between 2003 and 2023. He now holds the record for receiving the most awards in football history.
Messi has won four Champions League crowns and 10 La Liga championships over the course of his lengthy career. The football player previously stated that winning the 2014 FIFA World Cup was his greatest accomplishment.
Even though the Leagues Cup may not rank among these other victories, it nevertheless represents a successful beginning to his Inter Miami tenure.
Messi has scored 35 goals in championship games, which is a record for any player in football history.
Pele, with 31 goals, is the Argentine’s closest rival. With 22 goals, Cristiano Ronaldo is well behind Neymar, who has 21 goals.
Lionel Messi will try to carry over his success from the Leagues Cup into the current MLS season, where Inter Miami has a terrible record.
Inter Miami has only five wins under their belt and is now in 15th place in the Eastern Conference.
