According to David Beckham, those who claim Inter Miami’s recent victories are the result of a “fix” are doing the team the “biggest favor anyone can do.”

After coming back from being two goals behind, Inter Miami defeated FC Cincinnati 5-4 on penalties to advance to the US Open Cup final.

Lionel Messi’s two assists allowed the team owned by the legendary player from England to come back from a 2-0 deficit. The game went into overtime with a 3-3 tie before the Argentine superstar converted his penalty kick to help his team win on penalties.

Just a few days prior, Messi, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba—all former Barcelona players—helped the US team win their first trophy.

After defeating SC Nashville on penalties, Inter Miami was awarded the Leagues Cup.

When a reporter said their recent games almost seemed scripted, the former Manchester United midfielder responded to “fix” claims after their most recent victory.

“Every time Messi scores one of these goals,” according to Beckham.

“Each time one of Sergio Busquets’ passes is made.”

People ask “Is it a fix?’ every time Jordi Alba makes one of these runs.

“The fact that it is similar to a movie is the biggest compliment anyone can pay to these players.

“It’s emotional to watch these players play because everything about their game is flawless.

“Everything about them as individuals, off the field, is beautiful,” the author said of the players’ demeanors.

The US Open Cup final will now take place on September 27 and feature Houston Dynamo vs. Inter Miami.

Since the addition of Messi, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba, they have gone eight games without a loss.

Since moving to the United States, the 2022 World Cup champion has scored ten goals in eight games.
