The youngster scored his first goal in the French top flight, netting late in a 3-0 win for the Parisians

It's safe to say Timothy Weah has gotten his season off to a flying start.

With the teenager having scored in Paris Saint-Germain's 4-0 win over Monaco in the Trophee des Champions to open the club's competitive season, the teenager followed it up with his first Ligue 1 goal in a 3-0 win over Caen in the club's season opener. 

Having replaced Neymar in the 82nd minute with PSG already two goals to the good following strikes from the Brazilian and Adrien Rabiot, the 18-year-old nearly opened his top-flight account moments after stepping on the pitch, rattling the post with a shot that came back down the line but stayed out. 

But he was not to be denied on the night and, with a bit of hustle and some poor goalkeeping, found a way to put his side three goals in front. 

Caen goalkeeper Brice Samba either wasn't aware of Weah or severely underestimated his speed as he tried to play out from just in front of goal. But Weah closed more quickly than expected, and Samba's poor first touch saw him caught ball out in front of him when the youngster arrived. . 

The teen got the touch he needed, slipping in and tapping the ball into an open net in front of the dumbfounded goalkeeper. 

Weah also followed in his father George's footsteps in netting for PSG in Ligue 1, becoming just the second father-son duo to have scored for the French giant following Jean and Youri Djorkaeff.

While Weah was not expected to play a big part for PSG this season, his form over the summer and in the early stages may well lead to more chances for the youngster despite the wealth of options at new manager Thomas Tuchel's disposal. 

PSG return to the pitch next Saturday against Guingamp as the club continues its Ligue 1 campaign.
