USA U-17s in World Cup Round of 16

Paraguay will face USA on Monday in the round of 16

Weah, son of former AC Milan and Liberian legend George Weah, showed why Paris Saint-Germain has chose to invest in his talent.

Weah, Carleton, Joshua Sargent created problems galore for their rivals with their tactical brilliance. It was their work in the middle that helped cut out several Paraguayan threats in the first 25 minutes of the match, when the US turned the ball over too frequently and Paraguay looked primed for an early goal that might have set the stage for a completely different result.

It hasn't quite been a week since the U.S. men's national team crashed out of the World Cup, and you're still down.

The same combination was at work once soon again as Carleton turned provider for Sargent who whacked it in of the crossbar to give the North American nation a 4-goal lead. Coach John Hackworth's team, which in group play beat India (3-0) and Ghana (1-0) before falling to Colombia (3-1), also became the first US team to win three games at a U-17 World Cup since 1999.

Tim Weah, the son of 1995 FIFA World Cup Player of the Year George Weah, who is now in a run-off to become president of Liberia, was born in Brooklyn, New York.

The U.S.'s first goal came from a superb team move in the 19th minute, as Ayo Akinola got to the end of a superb through ball before squaring it up for Weah for an easy finish. Weah sped past his marker, Jesus Rolon, and struck with his left foot into the low corner.

Weah doubled the lead with a 22-yard curling shot in the 53rd and Carleton made it 3-0 off a pass from Sargent in the 63rd.




Weah's second was one of the best strikes of the tournament.

United States of America had finished third in Group A while Paraguay had topped Group B and today's encounter was expected to be a tight one but in the end, it proved to be a lopsided contest as the South American side never seemed to turn up.

Weah completed his hat-trick shortly afterward, from a similar position to his first, slotting the ball past the keeper from Carleton's assist. After conceding the first goal, the boys got really nervous and there was no coming back into the game for us.

The son of former AC Milan star George Weah helped his USA U17 side advance into the final eight with a hat-trick over Paraguay.

While Sargent has been impressive upfront, New York City FC midfielder James Sands anchored the central defense nicely, considering U.S. have conceded only three goals - all coming against Colombia.

Paraguay - Huesca, Rolon, Fernandez, Duarte, Ojeda, Galeano (Romero, 30), Baez (Bogado, 78), Sanchez, Rolon, Cardozo (Armoa, 55).
