Were present at the start of the South American qualification Lionel Messi, who played the first game against Ecuador and scored a goal from a free kick to give the Albiceleste victory. However, after the victory at the Monumental, there was discomfort and he was not included in the squad for the game against Bolivia and did not play in Major League Soccer this weekend.
For this reason, the captain of the Argentine national team was not present this Saturday during Inter Miami’s visit to Atlanta United, which won 5-2 in the 32nd round of the regular phase. The locals’ euphoria after the three points was so great that they even made fun of it Lionel Messi who had enjoyed a pizza from a renowned restaurant on his return to Florida.
In memory of the world champion’s meal, the Five Stripes Club published on its social networks a pizza on which an L can be seen, a reference to the word “Losers”, which translates as “loser”. As if that wasn’t enough, he added as a message: “Here’s your pizza for the trip,” which didn’t go down well with Rosario’s supporters, who criticized the Georgia team and warned that they would suffer defeat upon Leo’s return .
This weekend’s loss leaves Inter Miami in fourteenth place in the Eastern Conference with 28 points, seven points behind DC United, which has a spot in the playoffs to advance to the playoffs. Therefore, the next game is important against Toronto, the last team in the table with 22 points, which just lost 2-1 at home to the Whitecaps.
This is expected Lionel Messi is available for the game on the thirty-third date, where he would return after two absences due to his participation in the South American Qualifying Tournaments. The game will be played at Lockhart Stadium on Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. for Argentina and Chile (5:30 a.m. CDMX and 1:30 a.m. Thursday for Spain) and will be broadcast on Apple TV.
