Capable Of Scoring All Sorts Of Goals

Posted by betensured02 on July 30th, 2018

Capable of scoring all sorts of goals, his most famous moment came while playing for AC Milan in 1996 when he scored a solo effort against Verona which started in his own penalty area and saw him dribble past almost an entire team.

First brought to Europe by Arsene Wenger at Monaco in 1988, Weah scored 47 league goals for the club in four years before a move to Paris St-Germain. There he won the league title in 1994 and was the top scorer in the Champions League a year later – finishing ahead of Jari Litmanen, Romario and Hristo Stoichkov – before moving to Milan in 1995.

Playing alongside Roberto Baggio, Weah won Serie A in his first season with the club and won it again in 1999 but eventually fell out of favour and had short spells with both Chelsea and Manchester City in the Premier League.

But he scored just four goals in the English top flight though before returning to France – though he did add the FA Cup to his trophy collection with the Blues.

Soccer Predictions

Bale scores as Real Madrid wins Copa Del Rey

Gareth Bale continued his comeback from injury with the opening goal as Real Madrid recorded an eventually comfortable first-leg Copa del Rey win at Numancia.

Bale hadn’t scored in Spain since September but hit a first-half penalty for his fifth goal of the season.

Numancia, fifth in Spain’s second division, had Pape Maly Diamanka sent-off on the hour mark.

Isco then scored another penalty and Borja Mayoral headed in a late third.

Bale has been restricted to just six appearances in La Liga this season because of injuries.

Real will look to secure a quarter-final place next Wednesday, but holders Barcelona were held to a 1-1 draw by Celta Vigo.

Ex-AC Milan, Chelsea & Man City striker George Weah elected Liberia president

Former Chelsea, Manchester City and AC Milan striker George Weah will be the next president of Liberia.

Weah, 51, became the first non-European player to win the Ballon d’Or in 1995 – just one of many achievements over a prolific 18-year professional career that ended in 2003.

He entered politics after his retirement and had been serving as a senator in Liberia’s parliament.

His victory was announced by Liberia’s National Elections Commission on Thursday – it said that with 98.1% of ballots counted, Weah had won 61.5% of the vote.

He will succeed Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa’s first elected female president. She defeated Weah in elections in 2005, held shortly after the end of a brutal civil war.

For a few years in the 1990s, Weah was among the best strikers in world football.
