Inter Miami vs Nashville: After leaving Juventus Turin to join Inter Miami, Blaise Matuidi did not miss his big MLS debut.

For his first game with Miami, Blaise Matuidi created many chances with his passes

A first noticed. Blaise Matuidi was eagerly awaited at Inter Miami. “Les Bleus” world champion started with his new team on the night from Sunday to Monday. Already essential in his role as a left midfielder, he nevertheless failed to carry Inter Miami to victory over Nashville (0-0), despite some interesting actions, especially early in the game.

At the 8th minute, his vertical pass, to break the opposing first defensive line, launched a quick attack that the Mexican striker Rodolfo Pizzaro could not conclude, despite a Nashville goal completely beaten.

Matuidi’s influence over the minutes faded somewhat after the hour mark, which did not prevent him from scratching yet another ball and crossing it for the head of Argentine striker Julian Carranza , who lacked strength.

β€œI’m obviously tired, it’s been a while since I played an official match and I only had two practices in my legs. I am nevertheless delighted with the game as a whole even if the result is not what the team hoped for. We will continue to work and prepare for the game against Atlanta, “admitted on the MLS website a Matuidi who is already looking ahead to the rest of the adventure.

Gonzalo Higuain in reinforcement?

Diego Alonso obviously commented on the performance of a player he left 79 minutes on the field, a little more than expected … “He did a great job despite the fact that he only had two training sessions with the team. He really showed his qualities, his intelligence. He’s going to help the team. With more time, he will be able to adapt and help the team take a step forward and grow, “confirmed Alonso.

An expected rise in power for a team still at the back of the field in the standings and clearly under construction. Reinforcements are still lacking and the possible arrival of Gonzalo Higuain would do them a lot of good. Matuidi has probably already started his lobbying with his former teammate.
