Euro 2024: Weghorst’s Late Goal Earns Holland Victory Over Poland

Netherlands began their Euro 2024 campaign on a winning note after overcoming Poland 2-1 on Sunday.

Poland were without their all-time top scorer Robert Lewandowski, out with a thigh injury, but put that blow behind them to stun the Dutch early on when Adam Buksa headed home.

The Netherlands had been the dominant side but missed a number of chances before Liverpool forward Cody Gakpo equalised when his deflected shot flew past Wojciech Szczesny.

But just as it looked like they would have to settle for a draw, Burnley striker Weghorst – introduced in the 81st minute – snatched the win with a close-range finish moments after coming on.

It is a big win for the Netherlands with France up next for them in Group D on Friday, while Poland face Austria on the same day.
