Lionel Messi inspires Inter Miami to an incredible win over Dallas… scoring ANOTHER late free kick in a 4-4 draw before Tata Martino’s side won a dramatic penalty shootout in Texas
Lionel Messi delivered even more magic to help Inter Miami reach the League Cup quarter-finals with an incredible win over Dallas on a steamy Sunday night.
In his first game on the road since arriving in the United States, Messi opened the scoring after just six minutes before Dallas overturned the game.
Before the last 10 minutes, Inter Miami trailed 4-2. But on a night when temperatures soared above 100F, Messi turned up the heat with a cross that Dallas’ Marco Farfan headed into his own goal.
Then, with five minutes to go, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner sent another free-kick into the top corner to tie the game. This sent the game to a penalty shootout.
Messi netted Miami’s opening kick before Paxton Pomykal missed for Dallas, allowing the visitors to win 5-3.
