David Beckham’s dream of bringing Lionel Messi to Inter Miami finally came true in a remarkable debut for the Argentine superstar.
Five years ago, when Beckham launched his MLS franchise, Messi had sent him a congratulatory message, hinting at the possibility of joining the club in the future.
After Messi’s departure from Paris Saint-Germain, the dream of him joining Inter Miami became a reality. Fans and stars alike gathered at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale to witness Messi’s first game for his new club.
Initially, it seemed like a difficult start for Inter Miami, with Cruz Azul dominating much of the Leagues Cup game. However, Messi, in the final moments of stoppage time, produced a trademark free-kick that secured a dramatic 2-1 win for Inter Miami.
Watching from the sidelines, David Beckham was close to tears of joy as he witnessed the moment he had longed for. He celebrated the goal with a beaming smile and embraced his wife, Victoria.
When the final whistle blew, the overwhelming emotion seemed to overcome Beckham, and he appeared to be fighting back tears of happiness and fulfillment. It was a script no one could have predicted, but one that Beckham and Messi will cherish forever.
