Future Watch: Timothy Weah Rookie Soccer Cards, USMNT – Timothy Weah has an incredible soccer story. He is the son of former Ballon D’or winner, the great George Weah. (The elder Weah is now the President of Liberia.) The young Weah turns 20 on February 22nd and has already spent time playing for giants PSG and Celtic. He transferred from PSG to fellow French side Lille.
His time at LOSC Lille is really just getting started. Weah suffered a tough injury setback early in the campaign, missing six months. He returned over the weekend and saw some minutes off the bench late against Marseille. The club did announce that Weah had suffered an injury setback during his return.
Weah can play out wide as an attacker or in the middle. He is strong in the air and has good reactions offensively in the attacking third. I like his vision and ability to pass with either foot. He is unselfish but willing to take on defenders. He works hard and smart defensively as well.
I believe he can score plenty of goals once his minutes improve and he gets back to 100%.
Weah has scored in Ligue 1, he has scored in the Scottish Prem and he has scored for the U.S. He can shine is for the U.S. Men’s National Team in the next few years. He has already been capped eight times and has recorded one goal and one assist, with the goal for country coming against Bolivia when he was just 18 years old. When healthy, Weah is a promising piece for the national side and I expect the 2022 World Cup could be a massive tournament for him.
