Lionel Messi, a forward for Inter Miami, has expressed his satisfaction following his team’s 2-1 Leagues Cup victory over Cruz Azul on Friday.
Robert Taylor gave Inter Miami the lead just before halftime.
However, Uriel Antuna struck back in the final 65 seconds to even the score.
At the DRV PNK Stadium in Florida, Messi, who entered the game as a substitute in the second half, struck an outstanding stoppage time free kick to give Inter Miami the victory over Cruz Azul.
After the game, Messi responded via a post on his Instagram page, saying it was crucial for his squad to start the week with a win.
“LET’S GOOOO!” was the Argentine’s writing. It was crucial for us and for all of our people that we were able to win this week. We keep going.
Following the expiration of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, Messi signed with Inter Miami as a free agent this summer.
