David Beckham took to social media to congratulate Lionel Messi and Inter Miami for reaching the US Open final.
The Argentine superstar, during the first 60 minutes, remained relatively quiet but then came alive, assisting Leo Campana in the 70th and 97th minutes, thereby compelling extra time. The Herons maintained their composure during the penalty shoot-out, securing a thrilling victory over Cincinnati and placing them on the verge of claiming their second trophy this season.
