Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami eyes treble after Leagues Cup triumph

Lionel Messi and Inter Miami have their first silverware, barely a month after the Argentine’s move to the Florida club, and are now turning their aim on a unique treble.

Messi scored one of his trademark wonder goals to put Miami ahead 1-0 in the Leagues Cup final at Nashville on Saturday, but the Tennessee side fought back for a 1-1 draw, forcing a penalty shootout where Miami emerged as the victor for its first title in its three-year history.

“Very happy to get the first title in this club’s history,” Messi posted on Instagram. “Everyone’s hard work and commitment made it possible. Hopefully this is just the beginning.”
