Wout Weghorst was on Sunday when he made his first international hit — more than three years after his debut. The striker born in neighbouring Borne cheered like a lion in Enschede after his hit against Georgia: he did so on request, he said afterwards during the press conference.
This included the cheering of Weghorst. “I hope it looked like a lion”, says the smiling striker, who already did this in March in a competition of VfL Wolfsburg, after he was not called up for Orange. The other internationals had also seen these images. “Those guys here said at lunchtime, if you‘re going to score, I’d like to see that lion.”
During the rehearsal duels in the run-up to the European Championships, Weghorst formed a spider duo with Memphis Depay and describes the mutual cooperation as ‘pleasant‘. “We are busy with each other a lot. I think we have a good feeling together and at least I can speak for myself. That feels nice.”
