Striker Wout Weghorst had his share after not being able to score against Gibraltar, claiming he had made efforts but luck did not come to him.
The Netherlands beat Gibraltar 3-0 in a Euro 2024 qualifier in Rotterdam, but it was a game where they missed too many chances. Ronald Koeman’s team had a total of 51 shots, but 39 of them missed the target.

According to statistics, Weghorst finished 9 times against Gibraltar but failed to score, while defender Nathan Ake scored a brace. With his poor performance, the player playing for MU on loan has received a lot of criticism.
Since joining MU on loan from Burnley in January, the 31-year-old has only scored 2 goals in 18 appearances. The latest, Wout Weghorst has shared after failing to score against Gibraltar. When asked: “Wout, imagine the Netherlands will face Gibraltar again in 48 hours. Did you score a goal?”
He replied: “Good question. At least I have more time. I tried my best, but really I was unlucky in the last match.”
Witnessing Weghorst’s interview, fans on MXH continued to criticize him. Earlier, speaking after the game against Gibraltar, he told ESPN: “There were a few situations where I almost scored, but only narrowly. As a striker, my duty is to score. goals in all kinds of games. I’m really unhappy not being able to score against Gibraltar.”
