Legendary Lionel Messi has continued to prove why he is arguably one of the best in the world of football. His latest feat was against FC Dallas as he bagged his 6th and 7th goals in 4 matches.
The star has created a buzz since his transfer to Inter Miami and he scored his second magnificent freekick for the club against FC Dallas, sending Inter Miami into the Quarter-finals of the League’s Cup.
With only 10 minutes left to play, Inter Miami were trailing 4-2. Then Messi whipped in a magnificent freekick that FC Dallas defender Marco Farfan headed it into his own goal.
Five minutes on the clock, FC Dallas conceded another freekick and Messi slotted another superb goal home bringing the match to a draw.
During the penalty shootout, Miami scored on all five of their attempts, while FC Dallas midfielder Paxton Pomykal missed to condemn his team to a heartbreaking defeat in a match they looked to have under total control.
After the match, Inter manager Tata Martino spoke to the media”I think it was a game where FC Dallas played better over the course of about an hour. In the second half we were set up better and I think it’s a show of character because it’s tough to come back in a match where the loser goes home.
“[The win] is helpful to believe we can be a good team and that even when we’re losing a game, we’re capable of coming back.”
NFL Legend, Tom Brady has something to say. He said:
“It’s eerily similar in other sports: when the great ones come in, they force you to do stuff that’s out of your element. You’re uncomfortable doing so. The New England Patriots did this every single time. People would see a ghost when [Bill] Belichick and Brady showed up.”
“In the four games [Messi’s played in], every single time someone [on the opposition] has seen a ghost because Messi is on the other side.”
