Football fans around the world witnessed a rollercoaster ride under the Saudi Arabian lights as Inter Miami, featuring the iconic duo of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, fell 4-3 to Al Hilal in a captivating friendly. Despite a valiant second-half fightback, Malcom's late strike for the home side spoiled the party for Inter and their star-studded attack.

Suarez, presented with an open net, and Messi, coolly dispatching a penalty, had brought Inter back from the brink after trailing 3-1 at halftime. The Uruguayan and the Argentinean maestro struck in the 34th and 54th minutes respectively, reigniting hopes of a dream debut victory. David Ruiz evened the score at 3-3 on the counter, expertly assisted by Messi himself.

The contest was a whirlwind of attacking displays, missed opportunities, and a touch of controversy. Messi had a goal for Suarez ruled out for offside in the first half, adding to the drama of the evening. This friendly, a prelude to Thursday's clash against Cristiano Ronaldo's Al Nassr, saw further reunion of former Barcelona teammates with Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba joining Messi and Suarez on the Inter pitch.

For Al Hilal, the current Saudi league leaders, the prolific Serbian Aleksandar Mitrovic continued his fine form with another goal. Ultimately, Malcom's late strike, with Messi and Suarez already substituted, sealed the fate of the match, delivering a thrilling encounter that lived up to its pre-game hype.
