The US Youth international, who is also eligible for his father’s home country of Liberia as well as Jamaica and France, came off the bench for a 15 minute cameo in PSG’s 2-0 win over Troyes in Ligue Un.

The young attacker had a chance to grab a debut goal, but could only place his effort after a swift breakaway into the midriff of the Troyes ‘keeper.

Timothy Weah became the third member of the Weah family to represent PSG, following in the footsteps of his father, as well as older brother George Weah Junior, who played for PSG’s second team in the French fourth division.

Weah Jr. also played for the US at youth level, before being called up to the Liberian National team in 2015, where George Weah’s cousin, James Debbah, is manager.

Coincidentally, Debbah also played for Paris Saint Germain.

With superstar Neymar out for the rest of the season and PSG cruising to the league title, it is likely Timothy Weah will see a bit more game time as the season draws to an end.
