New legend of Africa: Timothy Weah achieves two thingshis father George Weah never could
One of the most famous football dynasties has once againmade the world talk about it. In 1995 George Weah won theGolden Ball, but at the World Cup 2022 his son achieved twothings he never could.
Timothy Weah’s dad was not only one of the greatest playersof all time – he is the first and, currently, only African playerwho won the award World Player of the Year. George Weahplayed Monaco, PSG, Milan, and Chelsea and after hangingup his boots he became the president of Liberia.
The best goals of George Weah:
But this outstanding athlete was never able to play in the finalpart of the World Cup. Ready to bet that Weah Sr. dreamedabout it. Luckily, his son managed to make his dream cometrue. In one game against Wales, his son Timothy, a forwardfor the U.S. national team, achieved two things his old mannever could: playing in a World Cup match and scoring in a World Cup match. Weah Jr. opened the scoring againstWales, the match ended with a score of 1:1.
Lille forward Timothy was born in Brooklyn, NY, and elected toplay for the USA. However, the Weah family can’t beseparated from African football. So Timothy will always be ourguy – even if he wears a US team jersey.
Now he’ll be hoping to add more goals to his account as theUSA bid to make it out of their group.
We believe that the first goal of Weah Jr. in Qatar will not besingle. So, if you want to bet on a match with Timothy and US team, you can do it here👇
