The half-hour episodes and compelling testimonies try to explain the extraordinary event that sparked the participation of Lionel Messi in Inter Miami, a club fighting for the last place in the non-competitive United States league. The series produced by SMUGGLER Entertainment recounts a football history similar to the one it recovered in Places called Maradona in Sinaloa (Netflix, 2019).
On that occasion, Diego Armando Maradona managed a team that was in the second category of the Mexican league. His arrival triggered the sale of tickets, t-shirts, television broadcasts, a whole sporting revolution in football, and commercial terms created by his mere presence. Between love and mysticism, the series wanders in an attempt to explain the incredible phenomenon.
The same happened with Messi arriving in the United States, a revolution of all kinds shown in the results of the game with many epics made by the captain of the Argentine team on the field. The key objectives, the superhero celebrations, the victories and competition of your team in a tournament, etc. The series chronicles Rosario’s sporting adventure with epic tones.
Another production that will be remembered after watching the six episodes of the series is the film WIND (2023) directed by Ben Affleck. It is reminiscent of Michael Jordan’s revolution in the business of basketball. A link between athleticism and participation in the profits of a million-dollar business that Messi has earned using football. Although these details were not revealed, they were suggested by the testimony of David Beckham, who arrived as a soccer player in MLS 15 years ago and is now second in charge of Inter Miami CF and most responsible for the acquisition of Messi.
Messi’s time in Paris at PSG is also briefly recounted. A not-so-happy past in his career gives his new stage a spirit of revenge, raising the myth and consecrating a popular idol that will go beyond the boundaries and have many goals in the game without still overcome.
