Whilst Cameron Carter-Vickers didn’t get the starting spot he was looking for tonight against Wales in the USA team, it is another player with a Celtic connection who has made the headlines. Timothy Weah has scored the opening goal for the USMNT at this year’s World Cup in Qatar.
The Lille attacker spent time at Celtic in 2019 under Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon as he was drafted in during the January transfer window that season. The American did look very classy on his outings for the Hoops but he was never going to be signed for the kind of money Paris Saint-Germains wanted.
Timo did appear to love his time in Glasgow and helped us to our eighth title in a row back in the 2018-19 campaign. He arrived alongside other big-money players on-loan in the form of Oliver Burke and Jeremy Toljan – neither of whom were as successful as Weah in a Celtic shirt.
Here he is putting the USA 1-0 up tonight…
And the @USMNT make the breakthrough!
