Pizarro and the first goal in the history of Inter Miami
For his part, Rodolfo Pizarro, former player of Rayados de Monterrey, premiered with goal with the nascent Inter Miami, in the match against DC United, where his team won as a visitor 2 to 1.
The target came just at minute 2. David Beckham’s team took the lead on the scoreboard thanks to a great counterattack play. American striker Robbie Robinson started the counterattack from behind the midfield. With great skill, before reaching the large area, he leaked the ball to the Scotsman Lewis Morgan. He toured the right wing inside the area and, when he reached the bottom line, sent a low center so that Pizarro only pushed the ball into the net.
This was the first three points of the team led by the Uruguayan Diego Alonso, because in the previous day they fell 1-0 against Los Angeles FC, of the Mexican World Cup Carlos Vela.
The next game of “La Rosanegra” will be on Saturday March 14 against Los Ángles Galaxy, commanded by Javier “El Chicharito” Hernández.
It was precisely the latter who did not have a very good day. Well, despite the fact that thousands of Mexicans were present at Dignity & Health Sports Park to support him, including Mexican actor and comedian, Eugenio Derbez, “El Chicharito” still can’t find the goal.
In addition, his team was defeated by falling 1 to 0 against Vancouver’s Whitecaps, at the Home Depot Center in California. The local team, led by the Argentine Guillermo Barros Schelotto, had greater possession of the ball and sought goal options, but lacked forcefulness against the rival goal.
For his part, Jonathan Dos Santos reappeared with the Angelino team in the starting lineup and left the second half for Perry Kitchen.
This Sunday, March 8 at 8:30 p.m., the city’s other team, Los Angeles FC, will play on stage, who will play against the Philadelphia Union.
