Al Nasser vs Inter Miami Report: It was the day for which people had anticipated the most to watch the football GOATs, Lionel Messi, and Cristiano Ronaldo, have their potential last dance. But fate said otherwise when the news popped up regarding Ronaldo’s injury, and 24 hours before the match, he was out. This led to a situation where only one legend would step onto the field, and that’s exactly what happened on Thursday.
While Ronaldo watched the match from the spectator’s side, Messi sat on the sidelines for the majority of the game before being substituted into the game. But when he came, the Argentine had the same impact on the game as when he was sitting on the bench.
