Lionel Messi’s Miami Adventure: A Stellar Start and a Doting Wife Stealing the Show

  • by

Lionel Messi’s presence in Miami has been electrifying, but it’s his wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, who is capturing everyone’s attention. During Inter Miami CF’s impressive 4-0 victory over Atlanta United at DRV PNK Stadium, Roccuzzo stole the spotlight when she was featured on the broadcast celebrating her husband’s success.

The Argentine model, who married Messi in 2017, was caught on camera cheering and waving a pink flag, representing Miami’s team colors, as Messi scored two goals to secure the victory that propelled Miami to the Leagues Cup knockout round.

Messi, at 36 years old, has been showcasing his exceptional skills in his second outing with his new team. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner not only scored two goals in just 22 minutes but also provided an assist for a goal scored by Robert Taylor.

Taylor, who managed to score two goals during the game, couldn’t help but praise Messi in a postgame interview on Apple TV. He described Messi as the best player in the world and expressed his gratitude for having the opportunity to play alongside him, making it a dream come true.

This impressive performance follows Messi’s debut with the team, where he scored the winning goal in a 2-1 victory against the Mexican side Cruz Azul in front of a sold-out home crowd. His goal came from a stoppage-time free-kick after coming off the bench.

Since joining Inter Miami CF, Messi has already made a significant impact, scoring three goals, providing two assists, and leading the team to a perfect 2-0 record. His star power has undoubtedly boosted the team’s morale and excitement among fans, who have warmly welcomed both Messi and his wife.

As Lionel Messi continues to make headlines with his awe-inspiring performances for Inter Miami CF, another heartwarming moment unfolded during one of his matches. Former football icon and co-owner of Inter Miami, David Beckham, was reportedly moved to tears when Messi scored a breathtaking goal during a crucial game. The emotional sight of witnessing one of the greatest players in the world in action, donning the colors of his team, was undoubtedly overwhelming for Beckham, who has been instrumental in bringing Messi to the club. This touching display of emotion further illustrates the deep impact that Messi’s arrival has had on the team, its owners, and the passionate fans in Florida.

During Messi’s unveiling at Inter Miami on July 16, Roccuzzo was present with the couple’s three sons—Thiago (born in 2012), Mateo (born in 2015), and Ciro (born in 2018). Despite the rainy celebration, the sold-out crowd at DRV PNK Stadium showed immense support and enthusiasm for the football superstar and his family.

Inter Miami’s next match in the Round of 32 of Leagues Cup is scheduled for August 2, where they will face the winner of South Group 2. With Lionel Messi’s impressive performances and the support of his loving family, there’s no doubt that he will continue to make waves in Florida’s football scene and beyond.
