Antonela Roccuzzo cheered a Lionel Messi-inspired Inter Miami to an emphatic 4-0 victory over Atlanta United on Tuesday night.
She was in the stands again to see her husband in action for his new team – Messi was making his first start since signing for Miami and picked up where he left off in his last game.
He scored twice in the first 22 minutes and set up one other as his team stormed to an impressive 4-0 win in the Leagues Cup.
Antonela was caught on camera cheering her husband along at the DRV PNK Stadium and before kickoff, she shared a selfie with their sons Thiago, Mateo and Ciro.
The 35-year-old Antonela was actually first caught on camera by Apple TV cheering a goal by Robert Taylor – one of Messi’s new teammates – shortly before halftime.

Antonela was recently been house hunting in Miami alongside her famous husband as they continue to settle in following their move to the United States.
On the soccer field, Messi made a dream start to life with his new team on Friday night when he scored a stunning free kick in the final minute to lead his team to a 2-1 win over Cruz Azul.
His appearance on Tuesday marked his first start and he played for 78 minutes before leaving the field with his team 4-0 ahead. Tuesday’s win means Miami advance to the knockout stages of the Leagues Cup.
After Messi was unveiled as a Miami player in a ceremony at the team’s DRV PNK Stadium earlier in July, Antonela took to Instagram to thank the fans for their welcome.
Taking to Instagram, she shared a selfie of herself, Messi and their three sons, with the caption: ‘New beginnings.
‘How beautiful the love with which they received you, Leo Messi! Always by your side!’
Miami’s DeAndre Yedlin paid tribute to Messi’s impact on the team after the Atlanta win, saying: ‘He´s my teammate now. He´s our teammate.
‘He’s part of this team and he wants to win like everybody else. And he´s been a joy to be around, obviously not just on the field.
‘He’s obviously an amazing talent but off the field he really helps a lot of the younger guys, even older guys like myself.’
