Tim Weah becomes first 2000s play­er to earn USMNT cap

The PSG young­ster made his debut against Paraguay, becom­ing the first play­er born this cen­tu­ry to appear for the USA

Tim Weah made his U.S. nation­al team debut on Tues­day against Paraguay, com­ing on in the 87th minute to replace Toron­to FC’s Marky Del­ga­do and becom­ing the first play­er born in the 2000s to rep­re­sent the full men’s nation­al team.
The 18-year-old was born Feb­ru­ary 22, 2000, and was one of three play­ers to debut for the USA on the night, along with the 22-year-old Del­ga­do and Andri­ja Novakovich, a 22-year-old for­ward who is on loan with Dutch side Tel­star from Read­ing.
Weah has made his first-team debut for Paris Saint-Ger­main ear­li­er this month, com­ing on as a sub­sti­tute in the club’s 2–0 vic­to­ry over Troyes.
The teenag­er near­ly secured a dream debut on that occa­sion, nar­row­ly miss­ing out on scor­ing a goal.
While his inter­na­tion­al debut was short­er, he did have one moment of dan­ger, earn­ing a free kick in a good area after cut­ting in off the left.
Novakovich was close to scor­ing on his inter­na­tion­al debut as well, show­ing pace to get in behind Paraguay’s back line before see­ing the angle cut and his shot blocked out behind the goal.
Del­ga­do, who start­ed the match, had the biggest impact of the three first-time play­ers.
His bril­liant ball through for Tyler Adams set the teenag­er free, help­ing the USA earn a penal­ty that was even­tu­al­ly put away by Bob­by Wood for the only goal of the night.
