This year will be remembered as a year of firsts for Tim Weah.
The former B.W. Gottschee player found the net for the U.S. national team for the first time in the spring.
The one-time Rosedale, N.Y. resident tallied his first goal for Paris St. Germain in a preseason friendly in Shenzhen, China Saturday.
The son of soccer legend and Liberian president George Weah recorded his first score in a competitive match, in a 4-0 triumph over Monaco in the French Supercup — Trophee des Champions.
With PSG enjoying a 2-0 lead in the second half, the 18-year-old Weah scored. Another teenager, left back Stanley N’Soki beat Andrea Raggi to the endline and sent a cross to the near post that Weah put home.
Angel DiMaria finished with a brace, scoring the first and final goals for the winners and Christopher Nkunku added a goal.
Neymar played the final 15 minutes after missing PSG matches since breaking his foot in Feburary.
“We are very happy,” PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel told reporters. “I am very happy because we won our first final. It is fantastic. We won 4-0, it is incredible. And we deserved it. We won. We played as a team and I loved that.
“It was a very young team. And the circumstances were very tough, it was very hot. But we played with intensity, with a lot of intensity, and we played as a team. It is great.”
Don’t be surprised if Weah is called into the U.S. national for its September friendlies.
