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.
