The G.O.A.T. is already taking over Major League Soccer. Is anybody surprised?
Lionel Messi astonished fans with his game-winning free kick on Friday. He followed that up by notching a 20-minute brace during his first Inter Miami start on Tuesday against Atlanta United:

Leo Messi only needed nine minutes in his first Inter Miami start to score 😤
Major League Soccer @MLS
GO OFF, LEO MESSI.
Messi’s introduction to his new league was brilliant, as he smoked a game-winning, stoppage-time free kick to earn Inter Miami a 2-1 win over Cruz Azul in the Leagues Cup.
He’s following that up in style, much to the chagrin of Atlanta United. If there was any doubt that the 36-year-old was going to obliterate the MLS, it’s already been extinguished.
