Andrew Carleton made it 3-0 in the 63rd minute with a neat finish from inside the box after being set up by Joshua Sargent, who himself got onto the score-sheet in the 74th, timing his run well to receive Carleton's through ball before finishing emphatically to find the top right corner.

Weah scored a hat trick for the USA Under-17 national team in a 5-0 thumping of Paraguay in the World Cup round of 16, including a stunner that doubled the Americans' lead in the second half en route to a lopsided rout. When he feels I am ready, I think he will call me. Hence, the United States will hope to return to winning ways as they return to the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium after the loss in Mumbai.

The USA's five-goal margin of victory over Paraguay has been matched only once in 58 previous US games at the U-17 World Cup - in 2003, when Freddy Adu scored a hat trick in a 6-1 win over South Korea in the group opener.

His son isn't that bad either and he's playing for the U.S. "Hopefully, the opportunity to play in the PSG line-up will come at the end of the season", the 17-year-old, who now plays for PSG's development squad, added. Weah, who plays for Paris St. -Germain, is the son for the former Liberian worldwide George Weah, who moved to Brooklyn after the end of his professional career.

Asked whether he fancied his chances in the PSG first-team, Tim said: "I hope so".

"I know with hard work and dedication anything is possible", Tim Weah said. Learning from great players there like Neymar, (Kylian) Mbappe, (Edinson) Cavani, I feel that it is going to come. "So hopefully the coach, Unai Emery, is satisfied with what I'm doing so far, so hopefully I'm starting at the end of the season". Ayo Akinola, who was excellent in front created an opening for Tim Weah whose left footer from the centre of the box beat goal keeper Diego Huesca (1-0).

"It ended up being a attractive strike". Weah scored the opener in the 19th minute and the USA's fifth in the 77th, but his second was an eye-opener, and it gave the US some much-needed cushioning in its matchup against the group-winning South American side. I don't score a lot of handsome goals. Fed by Akil Watts, with three defenders converging, Sargent, at the edge of the goal area, spun away from the goal with two touches and laid it back for Carleton.

As the Paraguayans showed signs of fighting back, the Americans tended to get physical and in the processs defender James Sands and Chris Goslin were shown yellow card.
