Stengs Secures Hat-trick in Netherlands’ 6-0 Victory Over Gibraltar

Netherlands’ Calvin Stengs scored a hat-trick in their 6-0 win over Gibraltar in their Euro 2024 qualifier on Tuesday. The Dutch did not come close to France’s record score from the weekend. Mats Wieffer, Teun Koopmeiners, and Cody Gakpo scored the other goals for the Dutch side. They had already secured their place at next year’s finals in Germany. The 14 goals that France scored against Gibraltar on Saturday set a record in the European Championship qualifiers. Dutch coach Ronald Koeman used many up-and-coming talents in the match. Teenage defender Jorrel Hato became the fifth youngest player to be capped by the Netherlands at 17 years and eight months. Gibraltar ended bottom of Group B after losing all eight games, conceding 41 goals and failing to score. Gibraltar has conceded 20 goals in their two internationals this month, and goalkeeper Dayle Coleling has now let in 101 goals in 31 appearances.
