David Beckham’s Inter Miami won its first game in the club’s history after suffering five defeats in all of its previous five games in the MLS; they won their first three points by defeating Orlando City 3-2 at their Inter Miami CF Stadium to win the Miami derby.
His team joined the MLS in the 2020 season with its temporal home ground at Fort Lauderdale while they are completing their proposed 25,000 seat stadium to be named Miami Freedom Park.
A brace from Argentine striker Julian Carranza and a second-half goal from Rodolfo Pizarro clinched the match for Inter Miami despite two-goal from Orlando City’s Daryl Dike and Nani in the closing stage of the match.
The match was their first home game in the stadium after its opening game against LA Galaxy was suspended due to coronavirus. Unfortunately, the team had earlier lost five matches conceding eight goals and only managing to score three.
A thrilled Beckham took to social media as he shares his joy after the win despite waiting up late to 3am to see his team win its first game in the league posted.
“Couldn’t be there for our historic first win in our stadium but I was there in spirit congratulations to (the manager), our staff, players, and of course our fans that also couldn’t be there… winning feels good right. Its 3am, hairs a mess, flags the wrong way around but don’t care cause we win.”
David Beckham is a co-owner of the club along sides Marcelo Claure, Jorge & Jose Mas, and Masayoshi Son, found in 2018. Beckham had been offered an option to purchase an expansion team at the price of $25 million when he signed for the LA Galaxy in 2007. He decided to exercise his clause in 2014. The team still has a lot of grounds to cover, as they are 13th on the table in the Eastern Conference.
