Tim Weah, the 18-year-old son of the Liberian President George, made his international debut for the USA as they beat Paraguay 1-0 in a friendly.
Weah, who became the first player born in the 2000s to play for the United States, said: ‘This is what I’ve been waiting for my whole life.
I’m really appreciative of the chance that the coaching staff has given me, and I’m hoping that I get more call-ups.’
The teenager came on as an 86th-minute substitute in a game decided by Bobby Wood’s penalty kick, for the USA’s first win in three games under interim coach Dave Sarachan.
Weah made his debut for Paris Saint-Germain on March 3, less than two weeks after his 18th birthday.
He played alongside American midfielder Darlington Nagbe, whose father Joe was Liberia’s captain and a teammate of George.
