U.S. edge Paraguay on Bobby Wood penalty as Tim Weah debuts

U.S. edge Paraguay on Bobby Wood penalty as Tim Weah debuts”

Tim Weah ran onto the field wearing bright orange boots, the first player born in the 2000s to play for the United States.

The match saw midfielder Tim Weah and forward Andrija Novakovich make their US senior team debuts from the bench while Marky Delgado earned his first senior cap as part of the starting XI.

Tim Weah, the 18-year-old son of 1995 FIFA Player of the Year and Liberian President George, made his worldwide debut for the United States of America as they beat Paraguay 1-0 in a friendly.

And the USA opened the scoring just before halftime when Bobby Wood calmly dispatched a spot kick after Tyler Adams had been tripped up by Paraguay keeper Gatito Fernandez as he broke in on goal from a Marky Delgado through ball.

'All the guys that came in had a great experience of being a part of the national team throughout the nine days, ' Sarachan said.

Wood connected on a penalty kick in the 45th minute after Red Bulls midfielder Tyler Adams was taken down in the box by goalkeeper Gatito Fernández. After winning the ball in the defensive end, Delgado lofted a pass through the midfield behind the Paraguay back line to find the speedy Adams.

But they had plenty to cheer about when U.S. were awarded a penalty approaching half-time after Tyler Adams was brought down by Paraguay goalkeeper Roberto Fernandez - Wood making no mistake from the spot for his 12th global goal. "And Bobby just stepped up and buried it". Wood then slotted his attempt to the right of the keeper for what turned out to be the lone goal of the match and the 11th score of his global career.

Sarachan is likely to add some veterans when the U.S. gathers in late May for exhibitions against Bolivia, Ireland and France. The Americans won't play a competitive match until the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup, and a new coach may not be hired until after this summer's World Cup.

Paraguay, who like US did not qualify for the World Cup, were headlined by Cristian Riveros in his 100th worldwide appearance, out-of-favour AC Milan defender Gustavo Gomez, and Atlanta United star Miguel Almiron.

Paraguay's best chance of the match came 10 minutes later when Junior Alonso gained space on the left and crossed for Hernan Perez at the back post.
