Luis Suarez scores a brace to give Inter Miami the 3-1 win

In the 72nd minute, Inter Miami countered DC United, and Campana, from the right side, crossed the ball to Suarez in the box. The Uruguayan makes no mistake as he scores from close range to give Inter Miami the 2-1 lead. VAR checked on the foal to see if there was not a penalty on the attack of DC United before the Inter Miami goal, but VAR saw nothing, and the goal stood.

Gomez took the ball away from Klich and ran toward the goal. He passes the ball to Suarez, who had time to shoot in front of the goal but took too long. He almost lost the ball, but as the ball bounced back to him, Suarez made a left-footed chip over the keeper. The keeper had a hand to it, but he couldn't prevent the ball from crossing the line, and Suarez made it 3-1 for Inter Miami.
