Although Gonzalo Higuaín announced his departure from professional football, this will have to wait a little longer, since the Inter Miami beat Orlando City in Major League Soccer and got its ticket to the Playoffs of American competition.

The team of Miami won with a 4-1 win at home at the DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale to the Orlando Lions who were out of action in the American campaign. The goals came thanks to the participation of Leonard Bell, Gonzalo Higuain (with a doublet) and Ariel Lassiter.

As a result, the Herons team entered their name in the next phase of the tournament along with those already classified in the Eastern Conference: Philadelphia Union, CF Montréal, New York City FC and New York Red Bulls.

In the absence of a game still in the MLS, Higuain’s team can now have a little more calm, since it has managed to meet the first goal of the season, enter the Playoffs, something he did last in his expansion season, in 2020, ranked 10th in a season with a different schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Without hesitation, we can see how Inter Miami qualified for the Playoffs thanks to the important performance that the former forward for Real Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea and others has had, since Gonzalo Higuaín in the second half of the season in MLS had 14 goals and 2 assists in order to push the car on the ideal path.

Inter Miami will play its next game against Montréal on Decision Day. However, with his ticket in his pocket, Phil Neville, coach of the team, could rotate some pieces for the next phase of the tournament, that is, the Playoffs.
