[TV@] Inter Miami vs. FC Dallas live match 7 August 2023
”When Inter Miami began floating the notion that it would be the team to land Messi and bring the World Cup champion to Major League Soccer, there were no shortage of people who were, to put it mildly, skeptical about how realistic a plan that was. Among them: MLS Commissioner Don Garber. Yes, even the man running the league had a bit of doubt. Not anymore. Messi to Miami isn’t just crazy talk. It happened, with Messi now tasked to lift a team that currently has the fewest points in the MLS standings and is mired in an 11-game winless streak.
At this stage, head coach Tata Martino's side is just four games away from lifting a trophy. On arguably the friendlier side of the bracket – only one Liga MX side remains (Querétaro FC) – Miami have a clear target in sight. More Miami dominance | Messi Rewind presented by adidas FC Dallas, even with the spotlight squarely on Messi and Miami, will like their chances after rattling off back-to-back home wins over Liga MX sides. This run of form has also coincided with All-Star forward Jesús Ferreira rejoining the squad after representing the United States at the Concacaf Gold Cup. In a summertime transfer that flew under the radar, forward Eugene Ansah has scored off the bench in two straight Leagues Cup victories. Their higher-profile newcomer, former Real Madrid midfielder Asier Illarramendi, won't be available for selection.
”Beckham, the team’s co-owner and president, had huge dark blotches on his blue blazer because of the rain. It was going to take more than a downpour to ruin this party, one where fans roared and music boomed. “Tonight is a typical Miami welcome for one of the greatest players to ever have played the game, ” Beckham said during the telecast of the show. “The fact that we have our fans in here, celebrating this moment... this is what we have created and we’re very proud of that. ”Added primary owner Jorge Mas: “When David and I first met and we dreamt of what Inter Miami represents, it started off with the freedom to dream. And we dreamed of not only bringing elite players and the best players but the best player to ever don boots — and his name is Lionel Andrés Messi.

FC Dallas vs. Inter Miami live stream: How to watch Lionel
His first official training session that will be open to reporters is set for Tuesday and — if all goes to plan — he will play Friday in a Leagues Cup match against Cruz Azul. That could also be the Miami debut of World Cup winner Sergio Busquets, a Spanish midfielder who completed his long-awaited signing with the club Sunday through the 2025 season. Busquets, who turned 35 on Sunday, and the 36-year-old Messi were teammates previously at Barcelona. “This is a special and exciting opportunity that I’m very excited to take, ” Busquets said. Messi, a World Cup champion for Argentina and seven-time Ballon d’Or winner as the world’s best player in a given year, is joining a club that has the fewest points in MLS and is mired in an 11-match winless streak. Inter Miami opened the season with two wins and has gone 3-14-3 since.
It has 12 MLS matches left this season, and is 12 points out of a playoff spot — so it’s going to take a ton of wins just to have a chance. The club previously announced that Messi’s deal will be for 2 1/2 seasons and will pay him between $50 million and $60 million annually — putting the total contract value between $125 million and $150 million in cash alone. There are other factors, the value of which isn’t known. “This ought to be fun.... This journey here in Miami has been an epic one, ” Garber said. Messi’s greatness is not in question; he led Argentina to the World Cup this past December and is still generally considered one of the very best goalscorers in the world — if not the best.
“And when you have the best player of all-time making Major League Soccer his league of choice, I think it’s a real testament to where MLS is and where it’s going in the years ahead. ”The event billed as “The Unveil” happened at the team’s stadium in Fort Lauderdale. It comes one day after Messi, MLS and Inter Miami finalized his signing through the 2025 season. It’s the start of a busy week of events for Messi with his new club.
Aside from the trophy and regional bragging rights, prize money and three 2024 Concacaf Champions Cup berths are on the line. It's hard to imagine a better start to Messi's Inter Miami career, as the Argentine superstar has five goals and one assist through his first three games. Now, the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner and his fellow FC Barcelona legends – midfielder Sergio Busquets and defender Jordi Alba – play away from DRV PNK Stadium for the first time. While the Texas heat is bound to impact proceedings, the expectation is fans turn out in droves to see Messi and his teammates. And based on the immediate chemistry the Herons have demonstrated with Messi, Busquets and Alba on the pitch, there's little reason to think they'll slow down. Everyone's level seems raised, particularly winger Robert Taylor providing 3g/3a in this tournament run.
