A penalty was missing by Gonzalo Higuain, as his new side Inter Miami endured a 3-0 defeat at Subaru Park.
Higuain thus experienced a tough debut when Inter Miami were beaten by Philadelphia Union in MLS on Sunday.
Moreover, Higuain has now failed to score for his last four penalty tries in all competitions.
In his United States debut, the former Real Madrid forward nearly made a perfect start to his career, finding the outside of the post in the 20th minute with a bicycle kick.
Later, Higuain had an opportunity to bring Inter Miami back into the game in the 77th minute with his team trailing 2-0.
But he blazed a penalty off the crossbar and reacted aggressively after the Union players celebrated his miss.
