Lionel Messi scores twice as Inter Miami rally to oust FC Dallas in PKs

On August 7th
Lionel Messi scored two goals for his new team, Inter Miami. They advanced to the quarterfinals of the Leagues Cup through a penalty shootout. They had to come back from being behind by two goals twice and ended the game with a tie score of 4-4 against FC Dallas on Sunday night in Frisco, Texas.
Messi helped Miami’s Benjamin Cremaschi score a goal. Miami had not won any of their previous 11 league matches before Messi joined last month.
Messi has played in the Leagues Cup four times for Inter Miami. This tournament is where MLS and Liga MX teams compete against each other. The regular season will start again in two weeks.
Cremaschi made the winning penalty kick in a shootout that ended 5-4 in favor of Miami. Miami will play the winner of Monday’s match between the Houston Dynamo and Charlotte FC.
Facundo Quignon, Bernard Kamungo, and Alan Velasco all scored goals for Dallas. Dallas was winning the match with scores of 3-1 and 4-2 but then lost control of the game. Paxton Pomykal missed the penalty kick for FC Dallas by kicking the ball too high over the crossbar.
Even though Dallas lost the tournament, they are the first team to have a game against Miami that ended in a tie after 90 minutes since Messi joined the tournament’s group stage.

In the sixth minute, Messi scored a goal for Miami. He received a pass from Jordi Alba, and then quickly kicked the ball into the net with his left foot from the edge of the penalty area.
Officials at first said that the goal didn’t count because the striker Josef Martinez was not in the right position. But that decision was changed after watching a video, where referee Cesar Ramos decided that Martinez did not get in the way of goalkeeper Maarten Paes’ ability to stop the ball.
After Dallas changed the outcome of the game and took a 4-2 lead, Miami got lucky when the other team accidentally scored a goal for them. Then, Messi kicked the ball in a curved manner from a free kick and it went into the top right corner of the goal, away from the goalie’s attempt to stop it.
In simpler terms, this sentence means that the situation reminded people of Messi’s first goal for the Herons. In that match, he scored from a set-piece to secure a 2-1 win over Cruz Azul in the early rounds of the tournament. Field Level Media is a news organization.
