When Lionel Messi failed to convert an opportunity for Inter Miami versus Los Angeles FC on September 3, singer and actor Selena Gomez seemed stunned. After the terms of his deal with Paris Saint-Germain expired, Messi became a free agent and signed with a Major League Soccer (MLS) team earlier this summer. The Argentine star has exploded into the national football scene since joining Inter Miami.
Numerous celebrities have been seen visiting the stadium in recent weeks as a result of Lionel Messi’s impressive performances on the pitch. One such incident was Sunday’s match between Inter Miami and Los Angeles FC at the BMO Stadium in Los Angeles, California. Tom Holland, Leonardo di Caprio, as well as Meghan Markle, were among the celebrities present.
Lionel Messi received a wonderful opportunity to score during the game, but LAFC goalie John McCarthy stopped his attempt. The Argentine’s miss stunned the actor Selena Gomez, who also showed up at the game. The cameras captured her response, and the images quickly started doing rounds on social media.

Inter Miami’s Facundo Farias scored the game’s first goal in the 14th minute, and then Lionel Messi assisted Jordi Alba to score again in the 51st. The third goal was subsequently scored during the 83rd minute by Leonardo Campana, who was assisted by the Argentine. In the last minute, Ryan Hollingshead scored a consolation goal for LAFC.
