Miami chief Inter Barcelona idea

Inter Miami owner Jorge Mas would consider playing a game in Barcelona to allow Lionel Messi a Camp Nou farewell.

He said: "I gave him my commitment that I will do everything possible in the coming years so that he has the opportunity to say goodbye to his fans in Barcelona. Inter Miami will go there or we will have some kind of match.

"Messi's departure from Barcelona was not to his liking, he could not say goodbye to his club, which welcomed him as a child, and I think the circumstances were not what Lionel wanted."

Dreams hanging by a thread

Injured Lionel Messi sat out again as Inter Miami kept their MLS play-off hopes alive with a dramatic late leveller.

Tomas Aviles headed home in the 95th minute after Santiago Rodriguez had put New York City in pole position.

Miami are four points behind Montreal, who occupy the final play-off spot in the Eastern Conference, but have a game in hand on the Canadians.

Sam Surridge cherishes the experience of playing against Lionel Messi in last month's Leagues Cup final.

Speaking exclusively to LiveScore ahead of Nashville's match against Seattle Sounders, he said: "It was quite a surreal experience, especially as it was a final. 

"It was something I didn't think would happen, playing against Messi in a final, so yeah it was a bit crazy."

Miami blues

Inter Miami suffered defeat to Houston Dynamo in the US Open Cup final.

Without their injured talisman Lionel Messi, Miami fell behind to two first-half goals from Griffin Dorsey and Amine Bassi.

Josef Martinez pulled one back in second-half stoppage time but there were to be no late dramatics for Gerardo Martino's side.

Leo woe

Inter Miami dropped points on Sunday night after a team without injured duo Lionel Messi and Jordi Alba drew 1-1 at Florida neighbours Orlando City.

Fellow ex-Barcelona ace Sergio Busquets was rested for the short away trip with Gerardo Martino's men preparing to face Houston Dynamo in Wednesday's US Open Cup final.

David Ruiz had given Martino's play-off chasing side the lead at Exploria Stadium only for Duncan McGuire's 66th-minute effort to level the scores.
