WOUT WEGHORST showed Manchester United what they are missing as he scored a stunning goal for Holland.
The striker led the line for his country against the Republic of Ireland last night as the Dutch secured a 1-0 win.
It booked Ronald Koeman's men their place at Euro 2024.
Weghorst received the ball on the halfway line following a pass forward by Stefan de Vrij.
He had Nathan Collins pressuring him but the 31-year-old showed his strength to hold off the centre-back.
Weghorst let the ball run beyond him and then found a burst of pace as he sprinted beyond the Irish defence.
