Lionel Messi has just scored an absolute worldie for Inter Miami – a 40-yard screamer screamer, to be exact.
That's now nine goals in six games for Messi since joining the MLS side.
What can't he do?! 🐐— Major League Soccer (@MLS) August 15, 2023

Messi's Inter Miami were 1-0 up against Philadelphia Union in the Leagues Cup semi-final when the World Cup-winner decided to well and truly take the game by the scruff of the neck.
Receiving the ball just past the half-way line, the Argentinian icon dribbled towards Philadelphia's goal with a couple of defenders breathing down his neck.
But just as he looked like he was going to embark on one of his infamous mazy, jinking runs, the 36-year-old unleashed a ferocious shot from what seemed like miles out.
As the ball left his wand-of-a-left-boot, you just knew it was going in.
A truly magical strike from a player who keeps proving why he's one of the greatest to ever grace a football pitch.
When the MLS' official account posted a clip of the goal, fans flocked to the comments section to heap praise on the legend.
One replied: "Messi playing on easy mode."
While another supporter said: "Greatest of all time."
As a third added: "Makes it looks so easy."
Inter Miami extended their lead just before half-time too, this time through Messi's former Barcelona teammate Jordi Alba.
