Those present at Geodis Park and the TV audience had a heart attack when they witnessed the moment Messi fell. It was quite surprising that the referee did not give MacNaughton a yellow card warning.

The Argentinian superstar hugged his leg and writhed in pain on the field. “Things almost got worse for Messi after clearing the ball. The collision looked extremely dangerous, but Messi somehow avoided serious injury,” The Athletic described.

Doctors immediately entered the field to care for Messi. After all, he was still able to complete the match. Coach Tata Martino said after the match: “It’s good that Leo was able to play the entire match. The injury is not serious. He felt a bit tired towards the end of the match but everything was fine.”

Not only was Messi almost seriously injured, but he was also ridiculed by Nashville fans throughout the match. Every time the 2022 World Cup champion touches the ball, fans at Geodis Park Mohamed continuously chant “Ronaldo, Ronaldo”. This move is similar to when Ronaldo played football in Saudi Arabia. Rival fans also often chant Messi’s name to put pressure on CR7.

In this match, Inter Miami really had difficulty as a guest on Nashville’s field. Jacob Shaffelburg scored twice to help the home team lead 2-0. His second goal was a masterpiece with a curling effort into the far corner of the goal. He was voted best of the match.
