Hes very talented. If he has anywhere near the talent of George Weah then I think he will make a great addition to the USMNT in the distant future.

He has stated that he doesn't know if he wants to play for the US. Don't know why? Right now he can play for the US or Liberia.

From that video he looks to be a good Central
Striker. I know at the US u 15 level they were playing him wide. But I hope Hacky Hackworth realizes that he is a central striker for the u17 team.

I think he wants to play for France and France are trying to keep him there.

Definitely sounds more like it because Liberia offers absolutely nothing other than a national team spot especially if he is as talented as some may think he will become.

Don't know how he could play for France? Seems speculative to think that right now.

He has stated he is still undecided on either USA or France. But has said he really likes France.

Thats fine. If he doesn't want to play for the USA then so be it.

Too early to worry about this one. Pretty sure he's committed to the U17 setup and then we'll go from there.

Will play with the US U-17 in a tournament in France. Maybe he declined France who knows.. USA plays Brazil, England, and Russia.

Yes but he is close to obtaining it probably. As he said in previous interviews that wouldn't mind representing France at the national level. And they have expressed interest in him also.

I read somewhere that his father became a naturalized French citizen while playing for PSG in the 90's. Not sure if that counts for Timothy being a citizen. Also you only have to be a resident in france for 5 years and at age 18 you can apply to be a naturalized citizen.

Apparently just signed a pro contract w/ PSG. Hope he continues to develop and that we can hold onto him long term.
