Lionel Messi is having a major impact in his first days as an MLS player...and he is already re-writing history books with just one start and with no complete games for Inter Miami.
The Argentine scored a brace in his first start with Inter Miami, finding the back of the net in less than 25 minutes to give the Herons some breathing space in this clash. Once the first half came to an end, two more goals by Robert Taylor sealed the deal for the Miamians and their place in the next round.
As for Messi, the footballer did not waste time to make his presence felt, and if fans thought he was in for a long holiday, he managed to get his first record since becoming a Major League Soccer star.
