At the end of the Florida derby MLS clash on Sunday between Orlando City and Inter Miami, which ended in a 1-1 tie , ‘Tata’ Martino generated further doubt whether he could count on Messi for the match.

“I will talk to him (Messi) to see what he tells me about how he feels. It is not an easy decision and it will take time to make the best decision,” Martino said.

Ticket prices for the US Open Cup final rocket

Originally Ticketmaster had tickets on sale for the final with official prices ranging from 160 and 2,800 dollars, however, in the official resale section offered by the same portal, there are tickets ranging up to $9,990 for the “Field 3” zone, which is the closest to the playing field.

This is the latest chapter in the ‘Messimanía’ that has exploded since the Argentine embarked on the later adventure in his playing career and as things stand, there seems to be a growing possibility that fans turning up expecting to see the Argentine, just may be left disappointed.
