WOUT WEGHORST showed Manchester United what they are missing as he scored a stunning goal for Holland.
The striker led the line for his country against the Republic of Ireland last night as the Dutch secured a 1-0 win.Wout Weghorst turned Nathan Collins[/caption] The striker finished brilliantly[/caption] The goal secured Holland’s place at Euro 2024[/caption]
It booked Ronald Koeman’s men their place at Euro 2024.
Weghorst received the ball on the halfway line following a pass forward by Stefan de Vrij.
He had Nathan Collins pressuring him but the 31-year-old showed his strength to hold off the centre-back.
Weghorst let the ball run beyond him and then found a burst of pace as he sprinted beyond the Irish defence.
Weghorst now has eight goals in 28 games for Holland.
He has netted three in 11 matches for Hoffenheim this season.
This comes after his torrid time on loan at Man Utd last term.
Weghorst suffered a goal drought, scoring just twice in 26 games for the Red Devils.
None of his strikes for United came in the Premier League.
The club decided not to make the loan deal permanent and fans were left scratching their heads in amazement at the quality of his goal for Holland.
One said: “Where was this when he was at Old Trafford?”
Another added: “Bring him back to United.”
A third reacted: “Fantastic from big Wout.”
