Wout Weghorst says he saw his late winner for the Netherlands against Poland in the 2024 European Championship.

Wout Weghorst, a former star of Manchester United, says he thought he would score the late winner for the Netherlands versus Poland in the 2024 European Championship.
In Sunday’s opening Euros match, Cody Gakpo of Liverpool equalized after Adam Buksa gave Poland an unexpected early lead, but the Oranje were unable to get a second goal.
That was before Weghorst replaced Memphis Depay in the 81st minute, coming off the bench. The striker scored the game-winning goal with his first touch of the ball two minutes later.

At the 2022 World Cup, the 31-year-old became a national hero for his two goals against Argentina while playing as a substitute.

He was brought in on loan from Burnley for the second half of the 2022–2023 season, essentially taking Cristiano Ronaldo’s position at Old Trafford, and he enjoys a similar standing there.

He was only taken on permanently after scoring just two goals, neither of which came in the Premier League. He spent the previous season on loan at Hoffenheim, where he only managed to score seven goals.

Even yet, he continues to score significant goals for the Netherlands and believes that this most recent one was prescient, stating after the game that “you almost have a feeling.”
