United States of America forward Timothy Weah has reflected on his historic goal in his country’s 1-1 draw against Wales on Monday night.
Weah gave USA the lead in the 36th minute of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Group B encounter.
Wales rallied back to earn a share of the spoils with Gareth Bale netting from the spot eight minutes from time.
Weah made history as the first son of a former Ballon d’Or winner to feature and score at the FIFA World Cup.
“Christian gave me a beautiful ball and it was up to me to finish it,” Weah told reporters after the match.
“It felt like in the first half we had a lot of energy, a lot of momentum … and then coming into the second-half we dialed down and Wales turned it up a notch. They started pressing us, they had most of the ball and I think at the end that’s what really hurt us.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
