Lionel Messi, the Argentine maestro, etched his name in the annals of Inter Miami history once again, orchestrating a remarkable comeback to secure a spot in the US Open Cup final with an electrifying flourish during the dying moments of the match.

Facing a daunting 2-0 deficit against Cincinnati by the 53rd minute, courtesy of Luciano Acosta and Brandon Vazquez’s strikes, Inter Miami seemed destined for a disappointing exit. However, this is where Messi, the football sorcerer, assumed center stage.

With the resolve that defines champions, Inter Miami clawed their way back into contention. Messi, wearing the club’s iconic pink jersey, pulled a goal back in the 68th minute. His exquisite free-kick found the head of Leonardo Campana, who expertly nodded it into the net.

But it was the Argentine virtuoso’s coup de grâce that will reverberate through the ages. As the clock mercilessly ticked down towards full-time, Messi unleashed a moment of sheer magic. A precisely threaded pass, delivered with the precision of a surgeon’s scalpel, found its way into the six-yard box. There, Campana, the grateful recipient, coolly finished what Messi’s artistry had started.

It was a majestic assist, one that has become emblematic of Messi’s tenure at Inter Miami. Remarkably, in his first eight appearances for the club, Messi has been directly involved in an astonishing 13 goals, tallying 10 goals and contributing three assists.

This captivating performance follows Messi’s recent heroics that propelled Inter Miami to their first-ever trophy, the Leagues Cup, just last weekend. Now, he has gifted his new club the opportunity to further adorn their cabinet with silverware next month.

Inter Miami will lock horns with the Houston Dynamo in this year’s US Open Cup final, scheduled for September 27. With Messi in his current, irresistible form, David Beckham’s club is poised to be the firm favorites heading into the final showdown, as they seek to etch another chapter in their burgeoning legacy.
