The Basics

Age: 22
Club: Lille, Ligue 1
Position: Winger
Loves to: Combine and dribble

In One play


Timothy Weah ranks very, very highly on the U.S. men’s national team’s official sauce chart. He’s not at the top (that’s Sergino Dest’s spot from now until the end of time), but Weah has a ton of skill and is a strong dribbler. He likes to combine, find space, and knife through defenders in the attacking half of the field. He’s also a willing presser, which we’ve seen on display with PSG, albeit briefly, Celtic, and now Lille in Ligue 1 in France. Weah’s workrate and his technical ability make him a valuable player.
