Lionel Messi scored a long-range banger while Luis Suarez netted late in the second half as Inter Miami came from behind to pick up a crucial 3-2 win on Sunday morning against Sporting KC. The Argentine unleashed a worldie from outside the box in the second half to give the Herons a brief lead before Erik Thommy netted for the second time.
Thommy had opened the scoring in the sixth minute, but Diego Gomez hit back to level the game. Messi's goal was cancelled out by Thommy although Inter Miami had the last laugh with Suarez netting the winner in the 71th minute.
With a record crowd of 72,601 spectators turning up at the Arrowhead stadium to watch the Inter Miami vs Sporting KC clash, the players certainly didn't disappoint the third-largest audience in MLS history.
Thommy broke the deadlock in the sixth minute, he received the ball on the edge of the area after the Herons conceded possession and the stadium erupted as soon as the ball hit the back of the net.
The joy was short-lived however as Lionel Messi slipped Gomez through on goal after 18 minutes for a straightforward finish to level the proceedings.
It was the fifth assist of the campaign for the Inter Miami skipper who netted his fifth goal of the season after the restart. It was a glorious strike, the assist from Sergio Busquets was perfect and an even better finish as Messi's thunderbolt nestled into the top corner.

Thommy then hit a half volley at the other end, sort of saying to the Inter Miami skipper 'whatever you can do, I can do better.'
Having completed his brace, Thommy's goal allowed Sporting KC to tie the game at 2-2 sending the home fans into a frenzy yet again.
However, Inter Miami were able to take home all three points after Gomez picked the ball inside the opposition box and squared for Suarez who poked home from close range.
With ten goal contributions this season in the league alone, Lionel Messi's side jumped to the top of the MLS' Eastern Conference with 15 points, level on points with NY Red Bulls who have a game in hand.
