- Messi missed the game due to injury
WHAT HAPPENED? After missing out on the match due to injury, Lionel Messi's Inter Miami fell to the Houston Dynamo in the U.S. Open Cup final. The Argentine was still present in the stadium to watch the action unfolding, along with Real Madrid legend Zidane, who David Beckham invited to join him on the pitch before kick-off.
WHAT THEY POSTED:
THE GOSSIP: Zidane is one of many celebrities to watch Messi live since the Argentine's arrival in the U.S., with Prince Harry, Selena Gomez, Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson and Michael Jordan having all been spotted at DRV PNK Stadium. It's not the first time the former Madrid duo have got together in 2023 either, with Beckham having previously visited the Frenchman's Z5 sports venue in Istres back in June.
