The same day his son Tim Weah was playing for the USA, 51-year-old Liberia President George Weah played for Liberia's national team. The 79-minute appearance by the
1995 FIFA World Player of the Year came in Liberia's 2-1 loss to Nigeria that served as a chance to retire Weah's No. 14 jersey. Weah, who starred for clubs including Monaco, Paris St. Germain and AC
Milan, won the presidency of Liberia in a landslide run-off election in December. Tim Weah, who plays for Paris SG, grew up in Florida and New York, the hometown of his mother, Clar.
George had kept a home in New York during his playing career and met Clar when he was opening an account at a New York Chase bank where she worked.
Weah of Liberia leads the Lone Star out for this international friendly, donning the Number 14 jersey that will be retired today. National Anthems done and dusted.#SoarSuperEagles.
