Messi responds to Ronaldo’s hat-trick in his own way in America!

Saturday witnessed an exceptional brilliance by Cristiano Ronaldo, when he scored a hat-trick in Al-Nassr’s 6-0 victory over Al-Wahda in the Saudi League.

But the eternal rivalry between Ronaldo and Lionel Messi still exists, even if their different ways of life separated them, as the “flea”‘s response brought about a historic night in the United States of America.

Messi started in Inter Miami’s match against New York Red Bulls, which ended with a 6-2 victory for the Tata Martino squad.

Among the Inter Miami six, Messi scored 5 goals at once, 3 of which went to his close friend Luis Suarez, making the Uruguayan score his first hat-trick in the American club’s jersey.

Messi was not satisfied with this, but he also scored a goal that completed his team’s score, and with it led it to maintain the top spot in the American League’s Eastern Group standings.

The 36-year-old became the first player in the history of the American League to score 5 goals in one match, and he also became the first player to contribute 6 goals in one match as well.

It remains to be noted that Messi raised his contribution record with Inter Miami this season to 22 goals, after scoring 10 goals and making 12 assists in all matches in all tournaments so far.
