Oh, what a show! Lionel Messi dazzled fans yet again, putting on a spectacular display for Inter Miami on Sunday. The soccer sensation scored not one, but two incredible goals during the Leagues Cup round of 16 clash against FC Dallas. The match was a rollercoaster of emotions, ending in a breathtaking 4-4 draw in regular time. But hold onto your seats, because the real drama was just beginning!

In a nail-biting penalty shootout, Inter Miami emerged victorious with a score of 5-3, securing their spot in the quarterfinals of the Leagues Cup. And guess who kicked off the penalty magic? Yep, you guessed it—Messi himself, confidently converting the first spot-kick.

Let’s break it down for you: Messi’s magic struck twice during the game. First, in the 85th minute, he wowed us all with an enchanting left-footed free kick that curled its way into the top-right corner of the net. Talk about precision! And that wasn’t all—his second goal came during the penalty shootout, showcasing his nerves of steel.

But wait, there’s more! It turns out Messi is becoming quite the Miami maestro. In just four matches, he’s already racked up an impressive seven goals and one assist. His latest exploits follow a brilliant brace in a 3-1 victory over Orlando City SC on August 2nd.

FC Dallas wasn’t one to back down, with Facundo Quignón and Bernard Kamungo finding the net for them in the 37th and 45th minutes, respectively. Alan Velasco’s free-kick beauty and a quirky own goal by Inter Miami’s Robert Taylor added to the excitement in the second half.

Now, let’s talk about Messi’s deal—this superstar is here to stay! His contract with Inter Miami spans two and a half seasons, and there’s even an option to extend for another year in the 2026 season. We’re talking big numbers, folks—around $50-60 million annually, including his stake in the team.

The Messi spectacle rolls on! He graced the pitch in Frisco with two more fantastic goals, and that 85th-minute free kick was simply out of this world. It was like watching a master painter create a masterpiece, as the ball nestled into the upper-right corner, barely grazing the underside of the crossbar. Poor Dallas goalkeeper Maarten Paes didn’t stand a chance!

Yes, Inter Miami advanced, but the real hero of the day was Messi. He’s proving to be worth every cent of the Miami owners’ investment, delivering magical moments when they matter most. — Tenorio.

So, what’s next for Messi and his Miami mates? Inter Miami marches forward to the quarterfinals of the Leagues Cup. They’ll be hosting the victor of the Charlotte FC vs Houston Dynamo FC showdown, which is set to unfold on either Friday or Saturday. Get ready for more Messi magic, folks—this superstar show is far from over!
