Lionel Messi continues to go off as a member of Inter Miami.
Inter Miami moved into the last 16 of the Leagues Cup following a brace from Lionel Messi to push the team to a 3-1 victory on Orlando City SC on Wednesday night. Messi scored two goals on the night and in the crowd to cheer him on was his wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, who stole the show.
Antonela Roccuzzo got screen time after he scored goals and fans loved every bit of her being shown so much throughout his matches.
Here she is late last month. The 35-year-old brunette beauty was captured on the broadcast waving a pink flag, a representation of the team’s colors, as Messi tallied two goals and an assist.
His latest performance brings Messi to five goals and one assist in only three appearances while also getting his first full 90 under his belt.
Messi’s next match will be away from home, which is on Sunday at FC Dallas for a chance to make it into the last eight of the competition. Roccuzzo will be right there cheering him on as usual.
Roccuzzo and Messi met as children in their hometown of Rosario, Argentina, according to The Sun. The couple would get married at a casino on June 30, 2017.
The mother of three is also a social media influencer and boasts 36.2 million Instagram followers. Back in 2016, Roccuzzo announced that she signed a modeling contract with designer Ricky Sarkany.
Messi, who relocated to Miami with his family in July 2023, secured a deal for two-and-a-half seasons with the club. He is reportedly receiving between $50 million and $60 million annually.
