Timothy Weah Scored Hat-Trick For United States

Timothy Weah scored a hat-trick for USA Under-17 side against Paraguay to help his side progress to the last eight.

Timothy Weah was the star of the show as 5-0 win over Paraguay saw the United States storm into the quarter finals of the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup in India.

Son of former footballer-turned politician Geroge Weah, Tim Weah was happy to score his first goals in the tournament with a hat-trick.

After the game, Weah said – “I did not really change anything. I just listened to what the coach said. He gave me a specific set of instructions and I followed that. I continue to work hard for the team and whether the coach starts me in the match or brings me off the bench, I continue doing so”.

The 17-year-old forward plays for one of his fathers old clubs Paris Saint-Germain and it looks like he might find it difficult to break in to the first team anytime soon with the likes of Neymar, Cavani and Kylian Mbappe leading the line for the French side.

Football has been my ultimate passion since day one. Football really started becoming a huge part of my life when I was 14, but with the Internet not being as prominent at the time, I had a hard time finding pertinent information. And this is exactly how Football-Wonderkids came about. As the website’s Founder, I’m on a mission to curate information on current youth players across the globe and make it readily available all in one place.
