A little over five-and-a-half years ago, Major League Soccer (MLS) side Inter Miami came to life. Co-owned by legendary footballer David Beckham, Miami has made quite a name for itself in such a short span. The Herons are not the best soccer team in America, not by a long shot, but thanks to strategic signings, they have emerged as one of the most popular.

Today, we will take a look at the 10 Inter Miami players who have scored the most goals since they started playing in the Eastern Conference in 2020. Here are the all-time leading scorers in Miami’s history:

Six of his seven goals for Miami have come in the MLS, with the other coming in the Leagues Cup.

Since joining Inter Miami as a free agent in the middle of July, seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi has played four Leagues Cup matches, netting a whopping seven goals. Over the course of his legendary career, the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner has reached many astonishing milestones. And becoming a club’s fourth all-time top scorer after just four games has to be right up there.

Messi kicked off his Inter Miami journey with a match-winning free-kick against Cruz Azul. He then went on to bag consecutive braces against Atlanta United and Orlando City. Finally, on his most recent outing, he scored twice, including a free-kick, and put away his penalty kick in the shootout to help the Herons to a hard-fought win over FC Dallas.

Given the form Messi is in, it would not be surprising to see him reach the summit by the end of his debut season.
