July 21, 2021 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Inter Miami CF News Release


Inter Miami lined up for the match with the same starting XI that was slated to appear against the New York Red Bulls on Saturday; recent signing Nick Marsman started in goal, making his debut for the team. The team's two other recent additions - Kieran Gibbs and Indiana Vassilev - also made the matchday squad. The XI, meanwhile, featured the return of Robbie Robinson, who lined up alongside Rodolfo Pizarro, Lewis Morgan and Gonzalo Higuaín in attack for the first time since the team's second match of 2021 in late April. Ryan Shawcross also returned to the starting lineup while Leandro González Pirez again donned the captain's armband, while Sami Guediri made his return to the bench after recovering from injury.

New England opened the scoring in the 15th minute; Carles Gil delivered a free kick into the box for Arnór Ingvi Traustason, who headed it in for a 0-1 lead. The visitors doubled their lead in the 27th minute; Marsman made a save on an initial effort from Thomas McNamara, but the rebound found Teal Bunburry who scored with his effort to make it 0-2.

In the 36th minute, Traustason doubled his tally with a strike after a corner found him following a scramble in the box. New England tacked on a fourth goal just before halftime; Gil sent in a cross in from the endline that found Adam Buksa in front of goal, who volleyed a strike into the back of the net to make it 0-4.

New England added to its tally late in the second half, when Buksa scored his second of the match.
