A goal from Messi saves Inter Miami against the LA Galaxy

The Argentine celebrated his first goal of the new Major League Soccer season.

A goal from Lionel Messi saved Inter Miami against LA Galaxy. The Argentine star scored in the second minute of second-half stoppage time off a pass from Jordi Alba, achieving a tie.

"Inter are not an easy team to face. And the more they have the ball, the more difficult it is. It was a game with two very competitive teams that wanted to win, I love that," said Galaxy manager Gregg Vanney in a statement reported by AFP.

In this way, Messi celebrated his first goal of the year in Major League Soccer (MLS). This after he gave an assist on Wednesday in the opening game of the season that Inter won 2-0 against Real Salt Lake.

Meanwhile, the AFP recalled that with this tie, "Inter leads the Eastern Conference of the MLS with four points but one more game with respect to their pursuers, while the Galaxy is eighth in the West with one point."

Messi's presence filled the stands at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, on the outskirts of Los Angeles (California), where the attendance record for a regular season game was broken with a total of 27,642 fans.
