Saturday was a day to remember for U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team forward Timothy Weah.
Weah made his first team debut for Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday, coming on in the 79th minute of the team’s 2-0 win over Troyes. Weah, a member of the U.S. team at the 2017 Under-17 World Cup, has been a fixture with the club’s youth teams for several years and is reportedly in the process of negotiating a new contract with the club.

Weah created one chance late in his debut appearances, firing a shot that was saved before a teammate was ruled offside.
The 18-year-old forward scored twice for the U.S. at the CONCACAF U-17 Championship and followed that in up with a hat trick at the U-17 World Cup.
Notice they didn’t even have time to print his name on back of Jersey. Small steps younging. Best of luck to you.
A positive 1st step in what will hopefully be a long & successful career for club & country. I wish the kid the best, but there is a long ways yet to go.
Congrats to Tim hopefully won’t be like Josh Perez who made an appearance and then was shipped off to Serie C.
PSG would never do that to a Weah. He is the son of one of their greatest players not to mention the Liberian president.
Anyways well done to Tim for getting on the field, just a few days before they play Madrid.
Big news for Weah, but more importantly for the USMNT going forward! Congrats Tim!!
