Striker Wout Weghorst disappointed MU fans when he missed too many delicious opportunities in the match between the Netherlands and Gibraltar.
The Netherlands played completely against Gibraltar in Euro 2024 qualifying. They opened the scoring by Memphis Depay, then Nathan Ake scored twice to help the home team win 3-0. Thus, the Orange Tornado has the first 3 points in Group B.
Although the Netherlands won the match, perhaps coach Ronald Koeman could not be satisfied, the reason was because the home team finished 51 times. The ability to take advantage of opportunities only about 6% is clearly too bad. Wout Weghorst is the most disappointing in this match.
The player wearing the MU shirt played the full 90 minutes, had 4 delicious opportunities but could not take advantage. In addition, he also saved 2 times for the away team, when he blocked the kicks of his teammates. After the match, MU fans fiercely criticized the striker.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Ake scored a double as a defender, Weghorst as a striker made 2 saves for the opponent”, another added: “Nathan Ake is a defender, but he’s better than Wout Weghorst.”
A third commented: “Weghorst has more clearances for Gibraltar than shots on target. The away defense should thank him.” Another comment: “Netherlands have Johan Cruyff, Marco van Basten, Ruud Van Nisterlooy and now Weghorst.”
The Burnley striker joined United on loan in January and has only two goals in 15 appearances for the Reds.
