Video of Lionel Messi’s goal against Philadelphia, Inter Miami reached the League Cup final, details, press review.
Lionel Messi’s incredible adventures in the USA continue. On the night of August 15-16, Inter Miami won again. And he scored GOAT again. This time the opponent was Philadelphia, a team that only lost once in the last 41 home games. But who cares when Messi comes to visit with his team? “Philadelphia” was simply defeated – 4:1. Inter Miami reached the League Cup final for the first time in history. And at the same time he got the right to play in the CONCACAF Champions Cup. Also for the first time since the club’s inception.
In general, the match was surprisingly easy for the guests. Inter scored already in the third minute. He crushed the enemy. And, obviously, they fell. So the subsequent goals from Messi and Alba in the first half surprised few. It was only after the break that he managed to come to his senses. Then Philadelphia played a ball, but David Ruiz in the 84th minute put a forceful end to the game.
“The club is on its way to the first cup final in the club’s history and of course they have Messi to thank,” the Goal website describes what happened. – The Argentine scored the second of three goals, beating one of MLS’s best goalkeepers, Andre Blake, with a blinding shot from long range. This goal was the ninth since he arrived at the club. Messi was one of several participants in this victory. But, compared to previous matches, his impact was minimal. He was efficient, scored and then almost scored another in the second half. However, it is not to say that he especially surprised the audience with something.
Another four-goal game for Miami, which has reached that mark in four of its last five games. Now only one win stands between Miami and the club’s first trophy.”
And the competition between Messi and Pelé?
Will Lionel Messi score more goals from free kicks than the legendary Pelé?
The rival’s coach was discouraged by such a game of his team. And the actions of the opponent. He stated that Inter Miami would become one of the best teams in the league.
“It was a humiliating night for us. I have no words to describe what is happening. But you have to give credit to the opponent. They will only get better. There is no doubt about this. The level of their players is crazy. And that will make them the best team in the league. Maybe one of. But they will definitely be on top. I think this is the outlook for the near future. Nobody can stop them,” Philadelphia Union coach Jim Curtin said of Inter Miami.
And here, by the way, Messi’s goal. Big bang with 30!

The Philadelphia party environment differed little from what is happening elsewhere. Tickets sold out at an unusually high price. Season ticket holders exchanged their seats for Messi’s kit. The club has gained a lot with the attention to Leo. I’ve got four. And now he lives with fond memories. Leo ranks third in the list of top scorers in the club’s history. With nine balls. The first is still far away: there is Gonzalo Higuaín with 29 goals. But if Messi continues at this rate, he will soon catch up with his compatriot.
Curiously, Lionel’s ex-teammate at Barça, Jordi Alba, also scored. Celebrated in the style of Spider-Man. But this is a trend to which we have grown accustomed.
Now the references are not only from Leo:
Messi celebrated the goal again with a reference to superheroes. Two versions of why he chose Marvel
Saturday will host Messi’s first final in the United States. Rival “Inter” – “Nashville”, which met the Mexican “Monterrey” in the semifinals. But everyone understands that the current Miami club is almost unstoppable. The start is at 4 am Moscow time.
