In the United States’ World Cup debut against Wales, which finished in a tie, Timothy Weah, the son of Liberia’s President George Weah, scored for the US.
After a strong run and pass by Christian Pulisic, Tim Weah finished deftly.
With a late penalty, Gareth Bale came to Wales’ aid.
For nine days, President Weah will be in Qatar to watch his American-born son compete in the World Cup.
After the nation’s finance minister claimed the president was “entitled” to $2,000 (£1,700) day allowance during his visit to Qatar, his travel has caused controversy back home.
According to critics, giving Mr. Weah such a sizable daily salary violates his pledge to cut back on government spending in support of his “pro-poor strategy.”
