You can't buy an official Lionel Messi Inter Miami jersey yet – here's why

Since Lionel Messi announced he would be joining Inter Miami, I'm sure many of you have tried to get a hand on an OFFICIAL – caps intentional – jersey with his name and the iconic number 10 on the back. 

However, I also know that all of your attempts have failed. 

There are no Messi jerseys in Inter Miami's physical stores. Zero. And when you attempted to personalize a shirt with the Argentine's credentials on their website, you most likely had seen the following message: "We are unable to customize this item with the text you have entered. Please try a different entry."

It's a friendly, Leo, go easy on them! Messi scores hat trick on 36th birthday

It's probably for the best that Lionel Messi was way too busy to watch Inter Miami play on Saturday night. While the Herons were getting smacked 4-1 by Philadelphia for a seventh consecutive defeat in MLS, Messi was celebrating his 36th birthday in his hometown of Rosario and playing in a testimonial match for Newell's Old Boys legend Maxi Rodríguez.

When you mess with the Red Bulls, you get the horns and chaos in the Wild West: 5 takeaways from MLS Matchday 21

MLS is now past the halfway point in its season, and the summer break for the new Leagues Cup is quickly approaching.

5 takeaways from MLS Matchday 21

#1. Philly loves a 4+ goal win

What’s the saying about guarantees in life? Death, taxes and the Union scoring 4+ goals against weak opposition? It's not? Well, maybe it should be. 

A Héctor Herrera le duele el olvido: "Vengo a la MLS y ya no existo"

Luego del fracaso de la Selección Mexicana en Catar 2022, uno de los nombres que desapareció de las convocatorias del Tri fue Héctor Herrera. Y a HH la verdad que la idea de estar borrado no le gusta para nada.

Héctor Herrera se siente borrado de la Selección Mexicana

5 animals Lionel Messi should keep an eye on while living in Florida

Among the reasons Lionel Messi decided to play for Inter Miami is the idea of enjoying soccer "in a calmer way" while having more time around his family.

Sure, it sounds like a long-term vacation, a downgrade to an ill-called "retirement league," but the truth is Messi shouldn't let his guard down.  

Not only because there are defenders like Walker Zimmermann and Miles Robinson that can make him run for his money, but also because off the pitch, there are a series of animals and critters living in Florida that he — and his lovely family — should be keeping an eye on.

Messi's move to MLS is a creative deal that follows in the footsteps of David Beckham

Few would doubt Lionel Messi’s impact on European football. The scorer of 474 goals during his long career at Barcelona, he has been named the best footballer in the world a record seven times.

Now we are about to see what impact Messi will have on football in America. For the Argentine, who has spent the last two seasons playing for Paris Saint-Germain, has decided not to accept offers to play in Saudi Arabia, and is joining Inter Miami in Florida instead.

En medio de las miserias del Tri, Alan Pulido es un arma de destrucción masiva en la MLS

Alan Pulido es un hombre con una misión. Luego de perderse todo el 2022 por una lesión de rodilla, el delantero se ha convertido en una máquina de goles que resucitó al Sporting Kansas City de entre los muertos y que de a poco levanta la mano para volver a la Selección Mexicana.

Sobre todo ante la sequía de goles que vive El Tri.

La última demostración del poder de destrucción de Pulido ocurrió el miércoles en la noche, con el delantero siendo responsable del doblete con que el SKC rescató un empate en su visita al LA Galaxy.
