18-year-old American forward Timothy Weah was handed his first Ligue 1 start for winners Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday, featuring in the entirety of their 0-0 draw at Caen. Weah, who made two substitute appearances earlier this season for PSG was paired with Javier Pastore and Christopher Nkunku in Unai Emery’s attack but was unable to break down a stubborn Caen defense. Weah was able to crack the PSG squad this season which is an terrific achievement by a U.S. Men’s National Team member. Now Weah will prepare himself for a May 28th friendly with the United States senior squad as they face Bolivia in Chester on Memorial Day.
Matt Miazga netted a goal as Vitesse Arnhem qualified for European football next season. The American defender netted the second of Vitesse’s goals in their 2-1 road win at FC Utrecht, and advanced on a 5-3 aggregate scoreline. Miazga will also join Weah in the U.S. camp this week.
