Wout Weghorst Failed to Score in Netherlands’ Comfortable Win Over Gibraltar


Manchester United striker Wout Weghorst drew the match against Gibraltar, defeating the Netherlands 3-0 last night (Monday).

According to The Sun, the Dutch sailed past their unassuming guests, recovering from the blows inflicted by France in the first qualifying match of Euro 2024.

It was expected that Gibraltar would not cause a shock in Rotterdam, since the Netherlands has too high quality for its rivals, who occupy 194 places below them in the FIFA ranking.

Former Reds Mefis Depay opened the scoring before a second-half double by Manchester City’s Nathan Ake netted three points.

The Dutch may have expected more in terms of goals, as the outstanding match statistics greatly influenced their favor. Louis van Gaal’s men scored a whopping 51 shots during the game, as well as 19 corners and 62 assists from the game.

The Dutch were in full control of the game, having a huge 87% possession of the ball, and Gibraltar could not record a single shot or cross the entire game.

United striker Weghorst played the full 90 minutes, but for some reason could not get into the protocol, despite the dominance of the home team. Weghorst had nine shots during the night, four of which hit the target, three missed and two blocked, which was a disappointing evening for the big striker.

The 30-year-old is currently living his dream at Old Trafford, since he got a loan at United in January.

Weghorst has participated in every game of Erik Ten Hag since his arrival, winning the first trophy of his career in the process. However, Woot has scored just two goals in his 18 games, and he clearly lacks the overall ability to lead for United on a consistent basis.

A world-class central striker is a priority for Ten Hag in the summer window and Weghorst is expected to return to Burnley at the end of the loan period.

However, before that, he has the opportunity to write his name into the history books of United, as the club awaits an exciting end to the campaign.

With the quarter-finals of Europe and the semi-finals of the FA Cup, Weghorst still has the opportunity to write his name into the folklore of United.
