Ghana’s opponents in the upcoming U-17 FIFA World Cup, USA have named Tim Weah, son of former the 1995 Ballon d’Or winner George Weah, in their final squad for the competition.

Tim Weah, 17, signed his first professional contract with Paris Saint-Germain in June, tying the United States youth international to the Parc des Princes until 2020.

The younger Weah, who was born in New York, joined Les Parisiens’ youth academy in 2014 and recently represented the U.S. at this year’s CONCACAF Under-17 Championship in Panama scoring twice as the USA finished runners up.

He also stood out for PSG in the UEFA Youth League last season and scored three times in his first start — an 8-1 demolition of Bulgarian side Ludogorets Razgrad.

The final squads for the competition were announced on Tuesday with a few high profile names to watch out for including Brazil’s Vinicius Jnr and England’s Angel Gomes who play their club football for Real Madrid and Manchester United respectively.

The tournament begins on the 6th of October in India with Ghana and Colombia going head to head in the tournament opener.
