A Weah scores a goal at Parc des Princes 23 years

first_imgIt had to be 23 years later when a footballer bearing the Weah last name scored a goal for PSG in Parc des Princes, it was George’s son Timothy last SundayWe are delighted to inform you that this past Sunday we could see a young Timothy Weah scoring his first ever goal at Parc des Princes for PSG, this happened 23 years after his father George scored in the same stadium playing for the same club. Being the son of a football legend is arguably one of the biggest burdens any player can have, there are countless stories of young football players who have to live under the shadows of their legendary fathers and there are very few cases in which the son doesn’t embarrass the name of his father. In the case of Liberian legendary striker George Weah, who became the first non-European player to win a Ballon d’Or back in 1995 and today is the president if his country, it appears that his son is coming strong as he has shown the football genes running through his blood.George Weah with two spectacular goals for PSG. pic.twitter.com/TwDArRZpJm— 90s Football (@90sfootball) January 10, 2018Timothy has started this preseason with great performances, including two goals in his last two competitive matches, the first one being against AS Monaco (his father’s other French former club) in the 4-0 victory of the Coupe des Champions. Timothy scored his side’s third goal and his style of play is very reminiscent to his fathers, with the physicality and pace that the former striker always showcased during his 18-year career. Before scoring in the first championship match for PSG, Timothy also scored a goal against Bayern Munchen during the preseason in the International Champions Cup and he proved that he can be one of this season’s most unexpected surprises. But the best moment of his career so far, was reserved for this Sunday when he played his ninth Ligue 1 match with PSG and his fourth in Parc des Princes.I’m going to say it again: Timothy Weah’s movement as a striker is really, really good. Minutes after coming on for PSG, Weah almost scored as a direct result of his active, intelligent movement inside the box. pic.twitter.com/SPo2aTIEyb— Joseph Lowery (@joeInCleats) August 12, 2018It was near the end of the match when Timothy came in to replace Neymar with eight minutes still on the clock, he got a big chance to score after a mistake made by Caen goalkeeper Brice Samba and scored his first ever goal at Parc des Princes for the same club that his father represented so many years ago. It was back on February 14, 1995, when George Weah scored a goal in PSG‘s League Cup match against Toulouse, his son got to write his name in history exactly 23 years and six months later. At 18 years old and with a long career ahead of him, it looks like this could be Timothy’s breakthrough season as he is quickly becoming a regular in all the matches for PSG and scoring important goals for his club. It’s still too soon to tell if George Weah’s son will have a successful career in football, but things are looking good so far.? 21st August 1992:⚽️ George Weah scores his first Ligue 1 goal for PSG.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R.

His development as a youth has always been in that city and he kept jumping categories for different academies in the area, until PSG decided to sign him back in 2017 where he has remained ever since. Playing for the United States National Team, Timothy made his senior debut back in March 2018 in a friendly match against Paraguay. Not too soon after that in May, Weah scored his first ever goal with the senior National Team in the 3-0 victory against Bolivia. Seems like the USMNT has a great young talent in its hands, it also looks like he has a very promising future in football, and he is the son of a football legend who gave him all the genes to become one of the greats.Timothy #Weah’s first #Ligue1 goal – a goalkeeping howler of the highest order. #PSG pic.twitter.com/lXswNUYDut— Robin Bairner (@RBairner) August 12, 2018How many goals do you think Timothy Weah will score for PSG this season?
