What a block from Timothy Weah! USMNT star posts video of amazing last-ditch defending in Juventus’ draw with Empoli

After being reduced to 10 men following an early red card to Arkadiusz Milik, Dusan Vlahovic fired home from close range to put the visitors in the lead. But Empoli soon found the equaliser and could have had the winner, if not for some heroic defending by Weah. After being brought on just before the hour mark in place of Fabio Miretti, the USMNT star put his body on the line with a perfectly timed sliding challenge to dispossess Cancellieri in a one-on-one situation with just a few minutes remaining on the clock.

Juventus will next face Inter on February 4 in a top-of-the-table clash at San Siro. Weah, along with USMNT team-mate Weston McKennie, will be eager to inspire Juve to the three points, as the match result could potentially have a big impact on who wins this season's Scudetto.
