Benjamin Cremaschi did manage to pull one back for Inter Miami some minutes later before an own goal from Robert Taylor made the score 4-2.
There was time for more drama as the game ended in a stunning way after Marco Farfan scored an own goal and Messi then netted a fabulous free-kick to make the scoreline 4-4.
Inter Miami went on to win the game 5-3 on penalties, and Messi converted the first spot-kick for his team.
Taking to Instagram, Messi insisted that his team fought until the last moment, thanking the people of Dallas for the love they gave to Inter Miami.
The Argentine wrote: “We fought until the last moment, and at the end we got another win! One more step. Thanks to all the people in Dallas for the love.”
