Lionel Messi, the football icon, has expanded his collection of titles to an impressive 44, combining achievements from both club and country. Inter Miami CF’s victory in the 2023 Leagues Cup marked the milestone, with Messi’s brilliance shining once again.

The historic feat materialized after a 1-1 draw against Nashville SC, followed by a thrilling 10-9 penalty shootout win. Messi’s impactful performance since his mid-July entry into Inter Miami was highlighted by his tenth goal and clinching of the Golden Boot award.
