Five goals, two straight braces and three straight wins? Those are GOAT numbers – which means they’re Lionel Messi’s numbers, too.
Arguably the greatest to ever to do it showed once again that scoring and carrying your new team can be about as easy as breathing when you have other-worldly talent.
Orlando City SC became his latest victims as he netted twice for Inter Miami CF in Wednesday night’s 3-1 Leagues Cup Round-of-32 win that continued Messi’s dream start to life with the Herons. It also set up a Round-of-16 date for Sunday, Aug. 6 at FC Dallas, who advanced earlier in the night thanks to a 2-1 win over Liga MX side Mazatlán.
Messi scored seven minutes into the match then added a second strike in the 72nd minute. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has five goals in three games since his highly-anticipated MLS debut July 21.
As he eluded the Orlando City backline, Messi stopped a pass from Robert Taylor on his chest, dribbled a couple of yards near the edge of the 6-yard box and converted a shot that landed under the crossbar.
The goal gave Inter Miami a 1-0 lead before Orlando tied it 11 minutes later.
Messi struck again when he received a centering pass from Josef Martinez and flicked a right-footed shot inside the left post and put Inter Miami ahead 3-1.
The Venezuelan then set up Messi in the 72nd minute, lifting a ball inside the box for the 2022 FIFA World Cup champion to put the game away with a close-range volley.
Three games in, and Lionel Messi is already the undisputed King of South Florida.
