Lionel Messi is potentially just 90 minutes away from leading Inter Miami to the first trophy in the club’s history.
Messi scored his ninth goal in six matches since moving to the United States as Miami won 4-1 away at Philadelphia Union in the Leagues Cup semi-finals on Tuesday.
The Argentina captain found the net with a stunning low strike from 30 yards in the 20th minute, after Josef Martinez had given Miami an early lead.
Jordi Alba then made it 3-0 just before half-time by scoring his first goal in the USA following an excellent off-the-ball run from inside his own half.
Alejandro Bedoya pulled a goal back for Philadelphia moments after coming on as a 71st-minute substitute.
But David Ruiz wrapped up a famous win for Miami following a DeAndre Yedlin assist seven minutes from the end.
