Weghorst faces criticism as Netherlands fail to score against ten-man Gibraltar despite 51 shots
Manchester United striker, Wout Weghorst, came under criticism on social media after playing the full 90 minutes for the Netherlands against Gibraltar but failing to score despite 51 shots. The Netherlands won 3-0, with goals from Memphis Depay and Nathan Ake, but fans were still unhappy with Weghorst’s performance. Some fans even compared his goal tally to that of Gabriel Jesus, who has only just returned from injury, and critics described him as lazier than former Arsenal striker, Niklas Bendtner.
Weghorst, who has scored only twice in 15 appearances for United, joined the team in January to help fill the gap left by Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit. His performance has left fans unimpressed, and some are calling for him to be dropped from the team next season. Despite the criticism, some fans defended the striker, praising his hard work and team play.
