Brandon Vazquez ran riot, scoring two and assisting one for the home side.
The latest loss kept Inter bottom of the Eastern Conference on one point.
And pressure is building on boss Neville, who is encouraging his team to “work harder” to kick-start their season.
After the loss, he said: “In any walk of life, in my experience, the only way to get out of situations like this is to work even harder – to run more, play football more.
“We are a young team and I don’t want to use that as an excuse, but this young team needs to get up to speed with each other.
“The confidence needs to come back because we need to start picking up points and winning games of football – and the only way we’re going to get confidence is by winning games of football.”
But should Beckham decide to fire his pal and steer the club in a new direction, who could take over?
Well, Beckham could again turn to old pals and team-mates from his playing days to rescue his team.
Beckham will be more than familiar with Roy Keane as the Irishman was his captain at Manchester United.
Keane was linked with the Sunderland job but he turned down the opportunity to return to management.
The 50-year-old has expressed his desire to get back in the dugout if the job is right for him.
Well, how does Miami sound?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Beckham could look to another former team-mate in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian has been out of a job since his sacking from Man Utd late last year.
And there hasn’t been any suitors in Europe itching to snap him up just yet.

Former Man Utd ace Paul Scholes doesn’t have an impressive managerial CV.
But he could be an option for Beckham’s MLS outfit.
Scholes last stepped into a dugout in 2020 when he was caretaker manager of the side he owns, Salford City.

Beckham was a part of Real Madrid’s Brazilian clique during his playing days in Spain.
And he could turn to pal Roberto Carlos.
He said: “There was a great harmony among the Brazilians in the squad. Beckham was always with the Brazilians. He was part of our group.
“The Spaniards were jealous because he spoke more Portuguese than Spanish, so he ended up spending more time with us.”
However, Carlos’ last management gig came for the Delhi Dynamos in 2015.

Bruce Arena is one of the most successful managers in MLS history.
He is a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame.
Arena has also won four MLS Cups and worked with Beckham at LA Galaxy.
However, the highly regarded coach is currently the head coach and sporting director of the New England Revolution.
And his team are currently sat just four places above Beckham’s Inter in the Eastern Conference.
