The star-studded Inter Miami roster is finally showing signs of life. After losing six straight games, Miami bounced back against Toronto FC and delivered one of their best performances in a while to claim a 3-0 win.

Veteran midfielder Federico Higuain opened the scoring in the 10th minute after picking up a bad clearance pass from Toronto’s goalkeeper Alex Bono. Christian Makoun added to Miami’s lead just before halftime, using the confusion in the penalty box after Gonzalo Higuain’s corner kick to put the ball behind Bono once again.

The second half saw Toronto ramping up their attacking efforts in an attempt to get a goal. They managed to do so, but unfortunately for them, it was an own goal from defender Eriq Zavaleta in the 61st minute.

With three goals in the bag, Miami opted to slow things down, which caused the last 30 minutes to be rather uneventful.

The win will certainly provide a big lift for Inter as it became obvious that the losing streak was starting to cause a confidence crisis in the squad. The team will especially be happy for the high-scoring performance, considering they only scored once while conceding 16 goals in the previous six games.

Inter is now 11th in the Eastern Conference with 35 points. Their chances of making playoffs remain alive although it is fair to say it would be a small miracle if they get there.

Toronto, on the other hand, is second from the bottom with just 25 points from 30 matches.
