Lionel Messi is not playing in the US Open Cup final after failing to recover in time to be present in his second final with his club. However, the player did attend the game and was in the box at the Inter Miami stadium, where the cameras did not stop following him. Now, the player could not hide his concern when seeing the mistakes of some of his teammates in the game.
The Argentine player has been suffering from physical discomfort since his call to the Argentina National Team for the friendlies and the start of the playoffs in Conmebol. Despite this, the player wanted to wait until the last minute to evaluate his availability for this match, something that ultimately never happened. However, the player is positioned as one of the great people responsible for the club’s important results.

At 70 minutes, the Houston Dynamo was very close to scoring the third counterattack goal, but failed in the definition. Inter Miami is desperately looking for a discount, but without ideas. Moments later, the Florida club almost scored, but was unable to complete its actions within the game. A situation that worried Lionel Messi without a doubt. Now it is surprising that the club would lose a game against the Houston Dynamo.
Inter Miami was surpassed by Houston Dynamo
Despite coming in an important moment of form, Inter Miami failed to establish itself in the expected way in the match. Unfortunately for the captain, Houston then extended the lead from the penalty spot through Moroccan Amine Bassi. However, on this occasion Lionel’s reaction was calmer: he remained serious without uttering any grimace or words. After focusing on the top Ballon d’Or winner (7), the cameras showed the celebration of James Harden, an NBA star who cheered for Dynamo. Lionel Messi seems to be left without a new trophy in his ranks.
