Inter Miami triumphs 2-0 over Real Salt Lake with Messi’s stellar performance

Lionel Messi’s exceptional performance lead Inter Miami to a 2-0 victory against Real Salt Lake in the 2024 MLS opener

Lionel Messi showcased his exceptional skills in a stellar opening match of the 2024 MLS season, contributing to Inter Miami’s 2-0 victory against Real Salt Lake at Chase Stadium.

The evening not only marked Messi’s first assist of the season but also included a halftime embrace with Will Smith.

Throughout the game, Messi played with an unmatched intensity, leaving even his seasoned personal bodyguard Yassine Chueko short of breath as he diligently tracked the player’s movements along the near touchline.

The victory, however, was tinged with concern as newcomer Luis Suarez visibly grappled with physical discomfort, his movements hindered by the toll of recent injuries.

Goals from Robert Taylor and Diego Gomez secured the win for Inter Miami, but the team’s concern for Suarez’s well-being added a somber note to the celebration.
