Timothy Weah scores first Ligue 1 goal as PSG downs Caen


Timothy Weah carried over his strong preseason form into the Ligue 1 opener for Paris Saint-Germain. The U.S. Men’s National Team teenager scored his first ever league goal for the club in the 89th minute of their 3-0 win over Caen.

Weah took advantage of a defensive mistake to originally win the ball, then a goalkeeping error to put it in the back of the net.

Weah is coming off an excellent preseason with PSG. He scored a goal in International Champions Cup play and also added one in the French Trophee des Champions match against AS Monaco.

As for this match, Weah started on the bench but came on as a sub in the 82nd minute before scoring seven minutes later.


  1. Training with guys like Cavani, Mbappe and Neymar will only make him better. As long as he makes the bench staying at PSG is fine. Dude could be a top 10 world player and would still not start for that team.

    • Just making the gameday 18 with that roster is an accomplishment few could hope for. That being said, Tuchel is a fan of youth, giving Pulisic his first chance, and no doubt, will do the same for Weah.

  2. Off the mark…. Sure it’s not the sort of goal you’d expect to see in a World Cup final (errr…) or a Champions League final (nevermind), but you have to think that’s the kind of effort the coach will love to see. Could be a big year for him— one step at a time.

    • No Mbappe or Cavani this week. With a full PSG squad its still going to be tough to find minutes for Tim. Helps that PSG likely will have a ton of Cup and Champions League matches and Tuchel always liked to rotate his players to keep them fresh at Dortmund. At 18 I’m ok if he gets in 15-20 matches as a sub with an occasional start thrown in and just learns from the big names in practice. 2 goals in 2 matches so far this season shouldn’t hurt his playing time either.

      • Agree and lets not forget he will most likely get call ups to usmnt camps especially Sept one to get mins(depending on new manager when and if that happens)
