Timothy Weah feels that the current crop of new talent emerging in the US national team will one day be capable of beating any side

Weah is a part of a new-look US squad along with forward Christian Pulisic, midfielders Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie and defensive duo Cameron Carter-Vickers and Matt Miazga.

The national side failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup after seven straight appearances.

But Weah feels that the new-look US team has what to takes to reach the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and potentially beat anyone that stands before them.

“We can only go forward. We’re still young, super young,” said the 18-year-old, according to SportsKeeda.

“We have something big here, and it’s just developing in the right way, us getting used to each other and gaining maturity and I think that’s the most important thing.

“And once we have that, we’ll beat any team and I feel we can even do that now.

“But it’s just a matter of time before things start clicking together and we start getting the job done.”

Weah became the fourth-youngest player to score for the US in a friendly against Bolivia back in May.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker has made three appearances for the senior US squad after debuting in March this year.
