Lionel Messi scores twice for Inter Miami in 3-1 win vs. Orlando City


Lionel Messi scored two goals for Inter Miami in their 3-1 win vs. Orlando City in the League Cup.

Messi scored his fourth and fifth goal in three Inter Miami matches in their 3-1 win. It took Messi only seven minutes to score the first goal of the match, a chested volley.

A cross into the penalty area and the Best player in the world chested the ball, controled it and scored to give Inter Miami the 1-0 lead.

Inter Miami were awarded a free kick and it was Messi who took it and came close to scoring but his effort was saved. Messi also hit the post in the first half.

Orlando City would draw level going into the second half. Inter Miami would be awarded a penalty kick in the second half and Messi would leave it to Martinez who would score to restore Inter Miami’s lead.

But just like in the first half, Messi would get a goal. Another volley from inside the penalty area would bring to five goals with Inter Miami and joint top scorer in the Leagues Cup.


  1. One thing I would like Messi to do while he is playing at the MLS is scoring as many free-kicks as he can. Golies in this league aren’t that good, so why not to score a dozen of FKs. I want him to surpass Juninho.

  2. No disrespect to Messi, but the news we should pay attention to is Alejo Veliz to Tottenham. This guy is an absolute animal in the air, fast, decisive, and will definitely be part of the 2026 NT at his current trajectory.

  3. Messi is killing it in MLS! Obviously the quality of players is far below European standard but letting Messi roam around for free in and outside the box says how much the coaches in that league needs to learn about playing against someone like Leo. France, Netherlands and Croatia, they sat back and defended and had to think twice before attacking Argentina with all their might but in this league cup they have hardly marked Messi, who is used to being surrounded by opposition defenders even when he went to the restroom. Today they trued their best to contain him but failed miserably. I would like to see a team parking the bus against Miami!

    MLS teams need to bring more stars in their teams if they want to capitalize on Messi’s marketing power!!
