United States men's national team attacker Timothy Weah received glowing praise from Pele after his World Cup goal against Wales.

WHAT HAPPENED? Weah latched onto a beautiful pass from Christian Pulisic before finishing brilliantly to put the USMNT ahead. It's hard to think of a better start to a World Cup career than a first-half debut goal, and he received praise from Brazil icon Pele that clearly touched him.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Weah is part of a legendary soccer lineage as the son of George Weah, but he's now making his own name on the World Cup stage.

WHAT NEXT FOR WEAH? His goal could earn him a start in the USMNT's second match against England, though Gio Reyna is said to be in contention after being snubbed against Wales.
