After Tim Weah put USA up 1-0 in the first half against Wales. I saw someone tweet about the time he showed up to a Men’s League game in NY to play with a team that was down a man:

The story goes like this via Daniel Rapoport at Sports Illustrated:
Tim Weah, son of legendary striker George Weah, is an 18-year old who plays for Paris Saint-German and made his debut for the USMNT in March. He was born in New York City and is back there visiting family for a few days. He posted on Instagram that he was looking to play pick-up in Manhattan.
In our scramble to find someone, we decided to take up Weah on his offer and direct message him the info: it was a seven-a-side game starting at 8:15 p.m. at Pier 40 on the west side of Manhattan. He then said he was down to come, and at this point the group text was absolutely buzzing.
According to the story he was moving at 50% and still making people look foolish. He even played goalie cause it got so out of hand. This is like Tyrese Maxey showing up to play in your Summer League to cross up a bunch of accountants. What a dude:
