Lionel Messi once again showed his amazing skills in football. His magical scoring performance helped Inter Miami win against FC Dallas in the Leagues Cup.

Messi, who has been impressing everyone since joining Miami, showed the roaring crowd his magic once again at the beginning of the game by scoring a goal in the sixth minute. He kicked the ball into the net in a strategic way, thanks to a great assist from his teammate, Jordi Alba. At first, everyone was happy about the goal, but then the referees said it didn’t count because of an offside. After looking at it closely, the referees changed their decision and said that another player, Josef Martinez, didn’t block the goalkeeper’s view, so Messi’s goal was allowed.

As the game went on, things got even more exciting. FC Dallas didn’t give up and showed their own skills by scoring impressive goals. Argentine player Facundo Quignon was really good, getting a perfect pass from Marco Farfan and scoring to make it 1-1. The fans at the stadium cheered a lot when Bernard Kamungo scored a great goal for Dallas just before halftime. He was really skilled and determined, getting past two defenders and scoring.

The second half of the game was full of surprises. Both teams kept fighting hard to be in control. Alan Velasco, another talented player from Argentina on the Dallas team, showed his skill at taking free-kicks. He scored a goal that the Miami defense and goalkeeper couldn’t stop, making the score 2-1 for Dallas.

And then, in the 85th minute, with Miami losing 4-3 and in danger of being knocked out, Messi pulled off another incredible move. He took a free kick from just outside the penalty box and curved the ball beautifully into the upper right corner of the goal, making the score 4-4. Miami came back twice from being behind 3-1 and 4-2 to make it a tie and force a penalty shootout.

During the shootout, Messi, Sergio Busquets, Leo Campana, and Kamal Miller all successfully scored their penalty kicks for Miami. Then, in a bold decision, coach Tata Martino chose 18-year-old Benjamin Cremaschi, who lives in Key Biscayne, to take the fifth and final penalty kick.

Perfection from the spot for @InterMiamiCF. 🎯

This courageous young player confidently took the shot and scored, celebrating with a roar and a pumped fist. Cremaschi, who is Argentine-American and has looked up to Messi, was already having a great night after scoring a goal that put Miami ahead shortly after coming into the game in the 64th minute. The penalty kick was the perfect ending to the game.
