The U.S. international struck in the French Super Cup.

Tim Weah’s stellar preseason continues. The 18-year-old U.S. international has gotten plenty of chances to impress new manager Thomas Tuchel while preparing for the upcoming season and he’s taken advantage of it.

Weah scored his second goal of the preseason on Saturday, his first competitive goal for the club. The goal came in the second half of the French Super Cup, France’s equivalent of the Community Shield, against Monaco to make it 3-0.

Here’s a look at the goal:

Weah once again started at striker for the Ligue 1 champions and played well. He had a few chances to score before this goal, but either just missed or wasn’t found by teammates in a good position.

The World Cup has ironically been a blessing in disguise for the youngster as he has had plenty of minutes to prove himself with PSG’s main attacking stars given extended summer breaks to recover.

Playing time this season is still very much up in the air. A starting job seems out of the question once the team returns to full strength. However, with moments like this, he improves his chances of getting real meaningful looks off the bench and in less important matches throughout the season.
