The hype surrounding Tim Weah has been tempered a bit lately with the 18-year-old stuck in the reserves for PSG after a strong opening to the season. But he’s here to remind you all that he’s worthy of your admiration and hype.
The New York native set up the USMNT’s second goal against Colombia in their friendly with a simply sensational assist. Check out his dime to Bobby Wood here:

Let’s give Wood credit for a very nice first-time finish. However, Weah was the star of this goal with a little bit of trickery to keep the defenders on their toes and an inch-perfect ball that was weighted precisely into the path of the striker.
What a fantastic play by a promising young player. Hopefully we get to see more of this for both club and country soon.
