Another first for Tim Weah Sunday.
He scored his first French Ligue 1 goal for Paris St. Germain in its 3-0 season-opening victory over Caen at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France.
In the spring, the former B.W. Gottschee player found the net for the U.S. national team for the first time.
The one-time Rosedale, N.Y. resident tallied his first goal for PSG in a preseason friendly in Shenzhen, China Aug. 4.
And now this.
Not too shabby, even if it wasn’t a classic goal before 47,289 spectators.
Weah, the son of Liberian soccer legend and current Liberian president, scored seven minutes — in the 89th minute — after he replaced Neymar.
It won’t go down in the books as a classic goal, but a goal is a goal is a goal.
A Caen defender played the ball way played back to goalkeeper Brice Samba, who took his time before either playing the ball out or booting it up the field. Samba apparently miscalculated Weah’s pace as the former Gottschee played scooted in on goal. Weah taking the ball off Samba’s foot three yards in front of goal knocked it home for the final goal of the match.
Neymar had given the hosts a 1-0 lead in the 10th minute and Adrien Rabiot doubled the lead in the 35th minute.
