Happy and proud. So felt AZ-striker Wout Weghorst, after he had penetrated to the final selection of the Dutch national team. “I was already very happy with the selection. This is great, but to automatically think I was already a step further. The focus is now turned toward the Orange also to do good.”
Weghorst said on the website of his club, wondering how it will be there soon, on the highest level imaginable. “It is wonderful that the coach give me this chance. I have for years worked damned hard to achieve this.”
“That we now have three players from AZ debut in this group is totally amazing. It was a goal of me to the Dutch national team.” In addition Weghorst called Koeman also goalkeeper Marco Bizot and midfielder Guus Lift on the Alkmaarders.
