In the night from Friday to Saturday, the young Slovenian national team player Mitja Ilenič played his last club match of 2023. Although it was only friendly, it was unforgettable. Mitja Ilenič and his teammates from New York City were visiting nowhere else but … Lionel Messi!
In Florida, where the South American moved after parting ways with the French giant Paris Saint-Germain, a Golden Night was organised to celebrate the Argentine superstar’s eighth Ballon d’Or.
Messi showed the assembled crowd his latest individual award, and when it got down to it, the club captain of the iconic Englishman David Beckham had to concede to the talented Belokran. Mitja Ilenič and his teammates won the match, which ended 2:1 for the visitors from the Big Apple.
New York City FC deservedly won a match where passions were running high. It was better, and it didn’t help Inter that Lionel Messi played the full 90 minutes. Mitja Ilenič started the match in his club’s striker line-up and left the game at half-time.
Gracias Leo, gracias Miami 🖤 Nos vemos el próximo año! pic.twitter.com/LoqEWZ48WX
