US men’s national team player Tim Weah does not think that the team’s relative youthfulness is a reason for the best online sportsbooks to discount the Americans at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
“Even though we’re young, we’re not young-minded,” he said after Tuesday’s training session. “It’s not an immature group at all.”
The 26-player roster holds an average age of 25 years and 175 days. This makes it the 2nd-youngest USA squad at a World Cup following the 1990 team (24 years, 24 days).
Weah noted that the U.S. has experienced players who have dealt with pressure-laden environments before. Christian Pulisic has won the Champions League with Chelsea. Weston McKennie has been a mainstay for Juventus.
Tyler Adams got off to a solid start in the Premier League with Leeds United after he got Champions League experience with RB Leipzig. Weah himself, at 22 years of age, has already taken part of league-winning teams with three different clubs. The most recent of which was Lille in 2020-21.
“I feel like right now, the way football is, age is just number at this point,” he said. “Some of the best players in the world are not even 24 yet. I feel like, individually, we all have our own experiences and we’re all bringing our own maturities to the team.”

Weah is confident from having recuperated from a foot injury. He logged two straight 90-minute outings for Lille in the right wing-back position.
“I’m a person that just lives in the moment,” he said. “Destiny is huge for me. I feel like if I wasn’t destined to be here, that’s just the direction my life was going to take, and I’m just blessed to be here, blessed to be healthy and living in the moment.”
Weah is now ready to appear in the sport’s largest international stage. The stage that eluded his father, George, who won the 1995 Ballon d’Or when he represented a Liberia team that fell just 1 point short of qualifying for the 2002 iteration of the tournament.
“My dad wanted to do it with his country,” Weah said. “He didn’t have the opportunity to do it and now he’s kind of living it through me. I think it’s a blessing. It’s just amazing to be able to represent my family on this stage and represent the whole country.”
England and Leicester City midfield player James Maddison is going to be available to play at the Qatar World Cup in spite of sustaining an injury on Saturday, according to the player himself.
Maddison had to leave Leicester’s 2-0 Premier League win at West Ham United only seven days ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. After he opened the score board 8 minutes into the game,
Maddison looked to have suffered a hamstring injury. He was substituted after 24 minutes.
However, he would tweet following the game that the injury was not serious and that he would be reuniting with the rest of the England team as had been planned.
“Another win & another goal. Perfect way to finish before the break,” he wrote. “Injury isn’t too bad! A small problem that was causing a bit of soreness. Can’t wait to meet up with the lads Monday.”
When he was asked about the player’s condition after the game, Leicester head coach Brendan Rodgers said: “He’s fine. It was just precautionary, a little soreness on the side of the knee. “He hasn’t trained a lot this week. He’s OK.”
The 25-year-old was the recipient of a dramatic last-second call-up to England’s 26-man World Cup roster on Thursday. Maddison’s only prior England appearance took place as a substitute versus Montenegro in November 2019. He had not been selected ever since in spite of a good run of form at Leicester City.
Following a calendar year in which the player has accrued 22 Premier League goal situations (only Harry Kane, Kevin De Bruyne and Son Heung-Min have more), England head coach Gareth Southgate decided to include him in his plans for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
