Liberia president's son scores for US at World Cup


Tuesday November 22, 2022

Timothy Weah, the son of Liberia's President George Weah, scored for the US in their World Cup opener against Wales that ended in a draw.

Tim Weah finished smartly after a surging run and pass by Christian Pulisic.

President Weah is in Qatar for nine days to watch his American-born son play in the World Cup.

His trip has sparked controversy back home after the country's finance minister said the president was "entitled" to $2,000 (£1,700) daily allowance during his stay in Qatar.

Critics say awarding Mr Weah such a huge amount a day goes against his promise to reduce public spending in favour of his "pro-poor agenda".
