Since Lionel Messi began his journey at Inter Miami CF, many players on the team have improved their performance compared to what they were showing in a very poor MLS season, where the team was in the last position in the Eastern Conference.
The influence of the Argentine star coupled with the incomings of Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, and coach Gerardo Martino has been crucial for this turnaround, but there's one player who is enjoying this moment even more: Robert Taylor.
The 28-year-old Finnish winger is experiencing an unprecedented period since his arrival in February 2022 at Inter Miami CF. The team's new dynamics and the playmaking abilities of the new players provide him with more opportunities to score, something he has capitalized on to improve his records.
During the 2022 Major League Soccer season, Taylor only scored three goals, whereas in the current 2023 local tournament, he had a record of two goals in 19 played matches.
Leagues Cup 2023, a tournament that could be a turning point
The international tournament has been a true revival for Robert Taylor's career, as he scored an impressive total of four goals in the five matches he played with Inter Miami CF.
In the debut against Cruz Azul, he was responsible for opening the scoring in what ended up being a 2-1 victory. Against Atlanta United, he had a stellar performance with his first double in the franchise.
In the semifinal against the Philadelphia Union, he was once again a key player in the team’s play, providing the assist for Jordi Alba’s first goal for Inter Miami.
Now, he seeks to maintain that top form when Inter Miami CF faces Nashville SC for the Leagues Cup 2023 title this Saturday, August 19th.
