Video of Lionel Messi organising Inter Miami's defence for a set-piece goes viral

Lionel Messi praised by fans for sorting Inter Miami's defensive position.

Fans are loving a video of Lionel Messi organising Inter Miami's defence against FC Dallas as they hailed his 'leadership'.

Messi produced another masterful performance for his new side as he bagged a stunning brace to steer his team into the next round of the Leagues Cup.

He opened the scoring in the sixth minute then levelled the game five minutes from time with a stunning free-kick to send the game into a penalty shootout.

Inter Miami went onto book their spot in the next round of the competition following their 5-3 penalty shootout victory.

The 36-year-old didn't just get on the score-sheet and convert his spot-kick, but also showed off his leadership qualities and justified being made club captain.

During a FC Dallas set-piece, the Argentine can be seen talking to his teammates to sort the defensive wall.

The clip shows him orchestrating the defence before telling Josef Martínez to take up a position in the wall.

Messi sorting Inter Miami's defensive position sent social media wild.

One Twitter user wrote: "Remember when PSG players laid him down behind a wall."

A second tweeted: "He is really better in Inter Miami than in PSG."

A third added: "True leadership."

A fourth said: "Captain for a reason."

Messi has now scored an impressive seven goals in just four matches for Inter Miami as he enjoys a blistering start to life in the States.

The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner will look to continue to inspire his team as he returns to action on Saturday when Inter Miami face Charlotte in the quarter-finals of the Leagues Cup.

The Florida-based outfit then take on Charlotte again in the MLS on August 21.
