Messi played for his new team and made a sensation with two goals in 13 minutes. Video
Legendary striker Lionel Messi marked the capture of the opponent's goal in his second match for American Inter. The 2022 World Champion did a double for the team from Miami, bringing victory in the group stage of the League Cup in the game against Atlanta.
Messi, who recently joined new team, opened the score in the match already in the 9th minute. After receiving the ball from his partner, Lionel went one-on-one with the opposing goalkeeper and sent the ball into the net at the second attempt.
13 minutes later the Argentine forward scored again. This time he took advantage of a great shot from the left flank by putting his foot under the pass and crossed the ball just under the far post.
It should be noted that in the end the match ended with a 4-0 victory for Inter. The Argentine also recorded an accurate pass on his account.
To remind, the Americans star striker brought "Inter" victory in his first match, scoring in the last minute with an accurate free kick.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, Lionel Messi's former partner on the French PSG Kylian Mbappe arranged a demarche. The club expressed readiness to sell him for 300 million euros to the UAE.
