George Weah’s Son earns First Senior Call-up as US Names Youthful Squad

Paris Saint-Germain’s Timothy Weah has received his first call-up to the United States national team, as caretaker manager Dave Sarachan continues his youth movement by naming a 22-player squad for the March 27 friendly against Paraguay.

Weah is the son of one-time World Footballer of the Year and current president of Liberia George Weah. After scoring a hat trick against Paraguay at the Under-17 World Cup last October, the 18-year-old made two first-team appearances with PSG this month, and Sarachan is keen to get a look up close.

Timothy Weah will have the opportunity to earn his first U.S. national team appearance. As far as our research goes, Tim will be the first child of a foreign national leader to lace up for the US national team.

Weah is one of five first-time call-ups included in a young U.S. squad named for the friendly against Paraguay on March 28. Levante fullback Shaq Moore, Bolton fullback Antonee Robinson, Manchester City loanee Erik Palmer-Brown and Reading loanee Andrija Novakovich are set to take part in their first U.S. camp.

Weah starred for the U.S. at the Under-17 World Cup last fall, and now that he earned minutes with a high-profile club like PSG, a national team call-up seemed inevitable.

“He’s a versatile player than can fit in at a couple different positions, and when you have speed and technical ability combined as a young kid, I think he’s an interesting prospect to offer an opportunity to,” Sarachan said.

However, like his father, George, Tim will not be playing in a World Cup…yet.
