Lionel Messi made his return to the starting lineup for Inter Miami in a 1-1 draw against his boyhood club, Newell’s Old Boys.

The Argentine superstar, who supported Old Boys as a youth and played for them before joining Barcelona, delighted home fans ahead of the start of the 2024 MLS campaign.

Messi, who recently recovered from a groin injury, was substituted in the 60th minute and replaced by 22-year-old American Lawson Sunderland.

Despite his early departure, the 36-year-old striker’s presence on the field was a treat for the fans.

The match remained goalless in the first half, but Inter Miami took a 1-0 lead in the 64th minute with a goal from Shanyder Borgelin.

The Haitian forward leaped high over a defender to head home a perfect corner kick from Finnish midfielder Robert Taylor.

However, Newell’s Old Boys managed to equalize in the 83rd minute with a goal from Argentine midfielder Franco Martin Diaz.

Diaz unleashed a powerful shot from the heart of the box, finding the bottom right corner of the net.

Inter Miami’s next challenge will be against Real Salt Lake in the MLS regular-season opener, which will take place on Wednesday.

The draw against Newell’s Old Boys served as a valuable warm-up for the team as they prepare for the upcoming season.

The friendly match provided an opportunity for Messi to reconnect with his roots and it was a special moment for both Messi and the supporters, setting the stage for an exciting season ahead.
