Gonzalo Higuain opened his goalscoring account in the States in sublime style, with a thunderous free kick against New York Red Bulls.
The striker signed for David Beckham’s Inter Miami last month, joining former Juventus teammate Blaise Matuidi in the MLS.
Higuain’s free kick proved to be the difference between both sides, as Miami sealed a 2-1 victory to keep their hopes of a play-off spot alive.
Inter Miami occupy 12th place on 14 points, four points behind Nashville who sit in the final play-off spot, with seven games remaining Beckham will be hoping his new project are able to secure play-off status in their debut season.
The 32-year-old will certainly be glad to put his nightmare debut behind him, in which he blazed a penalty over the bar before being finding himself surrounded by Philadelphia Union players.
