Sporting an LAFC scarf, Prince Harry was beaming with joy from the stands as he showed his support for his local club.

The 38-year-old’s British compatriots Liam Gallagher, Gerard Butler and Tom Holland were also notable attendees.

As for Hollywood legend DiCaprio, he opted for a more low-key look as he donned a dark baseball cap and sunglasses for the 10pm Sunday night match.

Meanwhile, pop star Gomez, who also lives in the City of Angels, was seen looking animated as LAFC aimed to bounce back from their defeat to Charlotte FC.

Though it remains to be seen whether the celebrities took part in creating the hostile environment for Messi.

The 2022 World Cup winner was greeted to a chorus of boos as he stepped out to warm-up ahead of the match.

But this had no effect on the 36-year-old, as he laid on two assists for his teammates as Inter cruised to victory.

In doing so, they have moved off the bottom of the Western Conference as Miami eye up an unlikely play-off spot.

They sit eight points off ninth spot – which would grant Inter a wildcard place – with nine games to go.

And in a boost for Gerardo Martino’s side, they have two games in hand over the majority of their rivals.

Inter are yet to lose in their 11 matches since Messi’s debut, with the forward chipping in with 11 goals and five assists in all competitions.

After their Leagues Cup triumph last month, the Herons can add more silverware to their cabinet when they face Houston Dynamo in the US Open Cup final later in September.
