Messi scores, Inter Miami beat Nashville SC in marathon shootout to lift Leagues Cup.

Goalkeeper Drake Callender to the right of the penalty kick saved a penalty from his counterpart Elliott Panicco in the 11th round to win 10–9.

Messi silenced a noisy Geodis Park in Nashville with a ridiculous 20-yard goal in the 23rd minute.

Fabrice "Fafa" Picoult of Nashville SC tied the teams at 1-1 just before the hour.

Messi made the first shot and scored on the penalty. Sergio Busquets scored his own and Callender's save on Randall Leal put Miami in the driver's seat.

Victor Ulloa had a chance to seal the win for Miami, but was saved by Panicco on goal.

The next 10 players scored before Callender put Miami ahead and sent Panicco to the spot.
