Lionel Messi 'fine' after left ankle injury

Although Lionel Messi seemed to sprain his left ankle during a training session on Monday.

It is not anticipated that the Inter Miami star would miss Tuesday's League Cup semifinal away to the Philadelphia Union.

Messi was captured on camera seeming to roll his left ankle during a close-range passing exercise by ESPN's Spanish-language network.

He briefly took a cautious step with his left foot before going back to the exercise.

Tata Martino, the head coach of Inter Miami, acknowledged that he was not present for the event but heard about it and stated, "Since everyone was fine, I imagine nothing happened."

Martino said in Spanish, "I was just at a part of the session because I had a meeting following and was finishing preparations, so I didn't witness exactly what transpired.

After joining with the Herons last month, Messi, the Argentine superstar and current World Cup Golden Ball winner, made his Miami debut as the Leagues Cup got underway.

He has been the most exciting player in the battle between all 47 MLS and Liga MX teams, scoring eight goals and setting up three more as Miami finished the competition 4-0-1.
