Timothy Weah said he “can’t wait to see what the future has in store” after scoring Paris Saint-Germain’s only goal in a 3-1 International Champions Cup (ICC) loss to Bayern Munich in Austria on Saturday.

Timothy, 18, is the son of the legendary Liberian George, the only African to win the Ballon d’Or in 1995.

Timothy, however, has pledged his allegiance to the United States, where he was born.

Against Bayern, the forward lined up alongside PSG’s new goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, 40, who made his debut against his father George in a Serie A match between Parma and AC Milan in 1995.

The veteran Buffon was part of a very inexperienced PSG side who were beaten by the German champions in the pre-season friendly.
