Weah scores hat-trick as United States of America crushes Paraguay to enter quarters

Paraguay have entered the Round of 16 having won all their three league games in the FIFA U-17 World Cup and they will be aiming to continue their good run when they take on the USA in their next encounter

The U.S. led at the half, 1-0, before Weah added his second with a stunning shot into the upper left-hand corner in the 53rd minute. "I don't really score so many handsome goals so I am really happy to get that tonight", Weah added.

Weah's father, who is on the verge of becoming Liberia president, was the FIFA Player of the Year in 1995.

Today, they played their first game in the knockout rounds against Paraguay, who were previously undefeated and by any metric do not suck. Fed by Akil Watts, with three defenders converging, Sargent, at the edge of the goal area, spun away from the goal with two touches and laid it back for Carleton. The lanky striker time and again darted passed the crowded defence with his subtle moves. However, they were shocked by a desperate Colombia in a must-win game for the South Americans.

Close to half way through the first half, off a swift U.S. counter-attack, Ayo Akinola, free on the right and he whipped in a low cross for Tim Weah, who calmly slotted home his first goal of the tournament.

The Paraguayans hit back strongly as Antonio Galeano moved up and set up Julio Báez whose right footed shot from outside the box was cleared by the goal keeper.

American midfielder Chris Durkin got his second yellow card of the tournament and will be suspended for the quarterfinal. Yehboah once again came into the limelight when he scored in the 49th minute. Ayo Akinola and Tim Weah had no problems in dribbling past the Paraguay defenders and it did not take them long to open their account.

Seven minutes into the second session Alan Rodríguez squandred another fine chance when he failed to convert an opening by Jesus Rolon by send the ball over the bar.

Andrew Carleton, the Atlanta United Homegrown signing who had already been the USA's key midfield orchestrator in the tournament, had a career game against Paraguay. It has been an important week for the Weah family with his father - Ballon d'Or victor George Weah - contesting in the Liberian presidential elections and Tim made it extra special with his brilliant performance.

Andrew Carleton made it 3-0 in the 63rd minute with a neat finish from inside the box after being set up by Joshua Sargent, who himself got onto the score-sheet in the 74th, timing his run well to receive Carleton's through ball before finishing emphatically to find the top right corner.

US in the process kept their unbeaten record on this pitch, having beaten India (3-0) and Ghana (1-0) in the league matches.
