Inter Miami CF didn't take long to put a goal on the board in their second MLS match of the season. The club's first-ever goal came just two minutes into the match.

Newly hyped, rightfully so, signing Rodolfo Pizarro finished off a keen counter-attack led off by Robbie Robinson. The beautiful offensive move from Inter Miami can be seen below.
Inter thought they had a chance to double their lead later in the match. A Roman Torres handball amidst the buildup led to the goal being called off. It didn't take much longer for Torres to get sent off forcing Miami on their heels.

Unfortunately, Miami on their heels didn't go so well. Within a few minutes of each other, D.C. United put two goals past Inter Miami to take the lead, and ultimately the match. The first came through a penalty and the second through Frederic Brillant.

That makes it two matches, and two losses for Inter Miami. Losing to D.C. United in your second match isn't all that bad. It was the way in which Inter Miami lost. Some silly mistakes, and ultimately two costly ones, cost them the match. Learning experiences for Diego Alonso and the team.
