Phil Neville praises Inter Miami after last-minute winner


Phil Neville has praised Inter Miami’s never-say-die attitude following their late 1-0 win over FC Cincinnati.

The Herons had to wait until the very last minute of normal time for Brek Shea’s winner on Saturday night, with the former Stoke City man getting behind the Cincy defence to connect with a Nicolas Figal pass before lashing the ball home.

Both of Shea’s MLS goals this season have come at TQL Stadium after the 31-year-old became the first-ever player to score at the ground earlier in the campaign.

The result means Miami have lost just one of their last nine games – and none of their previous four – in a run that has seen them move off the foot of the Eastern Conference table and into 10th. They’re now just four points adrift of the playoff places with a game in hand on DC United in seventh.

Neville’s side have scored three goals in the 90th minute or later during that run and the former England international believes his side’s determination to keep fighting for results has fuelled their recent rise.
