Lionel Messi arrived in Miami, and when he plays his matches at DRV PNK Stadium and converts, he celebrates his goals in a special way. Why?
Lionel Messi came to the United States to revolutionize soccer and make Americans call it football. The Rosarino star, who left PSG, seems to have found a comfortable place to shine. With 9 goals in 6 games, and alongside Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba, Inter Miami reached the League Cup final.
The team coached by Gerardo Martino will play the last match against Nashville FC, in the State of Tennessee. But during the competition, Messi stood out as he celebrated goals like a superhero during matches at the DRV PNK Stadium.
In the 4-0 win over Atlanta United, Messi celebrated his goal like the god of thunder, Thor. Then, during the Sunshine Classic against Orlando City, he impersonated Black Panther. And in the quarter-finals against Charlotte, he “became” Spider-Man; a celebration that his teammate, Julián Álvarez, also does.
In an interview with the Miami Herald, the footballer revealed the reason for his celebrations which went viral: “My three children are still on vacation, they haven’t started school yet, so every night we watch the movies of marvel superheroes. They came up with the idea and asked me to do a Marvel Superhero celebration every time I score a goal. That’s how it all started, and we continued this ritual. Every time we saw a new movie, we practiced celebrating a goal. But I only do them for home games, when the kids are around so we can share those moments. It’s when I see them on the pitch that I do them.
