Friday night’s Leagues Cup match between Inter Miami and Cruz Azul was a historical moment for soccer in the United States as Lionel Messi made his amazing debut.
Fans will talk about that night for decades. The night Messi arrived in Major League Soccer.
What isn’t being talked about as much but deserves a spotlight is the performance from Sergio Busquets who also made his Inter Miami debut.
Coming on in the 51st minute, Busquets had a solid outing stringing together passes and looking for Messi over the top. In his 36-minute cameo the Spaniard completed 30 of his 32 passes and look supremely confident.
