Inter Miami CF began their MLS story on Sunday afternoon. The overall story from the match was how well Inter Miami looked for it being its first match. Sometimes, expansion teams get melted in their first match. Inter Miami showed up.

Despite showing up, LAFC showed up more prepared and won 1-0. They didn't allow Miami really any legitimate scoring chances and took advantage of Inter's defensive breakdowns. After the match, Luis Robles and Diego Alonso discussed the team's effort and heart. Which for the first match in their franchise's history, is a good narrative to set.
“It was a great game, we played with a lot of heart against an excellent team, and I loved what I saw,” Alonso said. “We had a few clear chances. We have improving to do, but if we keep playing with this heart and intensity, we will do great things this season.”

Robles agreed: “We played well enough to earn a point. For our first game, you can tell we’re a work in progress, but there’s a lot of encouraging things and that’s why this group is so optimistic. It was a good team performance, a good place to start with a very, very high ceiling. We have a lot of heart and fight, and that’s going to be required to make it through this season.”
