Inter Miami’s Preseason Nightmare: Messi and Ronaldo Showdown Turns Sour

In a highly anticipated preseason clash in Saudi Arabia, the much-anticipated showdown between football legends Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo took an unexpected turn, leaving Inter Miami in disarray. Messi, nursing discomfort from a previous match, spent most of the game on the bench, while Inter Miami faced a humiliating 6-0 defeat against Al Nassr.

The nightmare began for Inter Miami with an early onslaught, conceding three goals within the first 12 minutes. Despite boasting an expensive star-studded roster, the team finds itself winless after four games of the seven-game preseason world tour, having been outscored 11-3.

Messi, initially expected to be left off the roster for Thursday’s game due to precautionary measures, found himself on the bench. A cameo appearance in the 83rd minute couldn’t salvage the match that was already lost for Inter Miami.

The Argentine star, feeling a twinge after Monday’s game, underwent an MRI as a precautionary measure. Despite efforts to train on Wednesday, he still experienced slight discomfort, leading to the decision to provide him with a few days to recover. Inter Miami’s woes, however, extended beyond Messi’s absence, raising questions about the team’s performance and prospects for the upcoming season.

As Saudi fans at Kingdom Arena passionately chanted Messi’s name, the match served as a stark reminder of the unpredictable nature of football, where even the most star-studded teams can face unexpected challenges. Inter Miami now faces the task of regrouping and addressing the issues that have plagued its preseason journey before entering the competitive season ahead.
