HOLLAND striker Wout Weghorst netted a dramatic injury time equaliser against Argentina from an ingenious free-kick routine.
But it wasn't the first time 6ft 6in striker had netted in that fashion.
Weghorst, who is on loan at Besiktas from Burnley, scored an IDENTICAL goal two years ago while playing for Wolfsburg.
In a 2-1 Bundesliga win over Arminia Bielefeld in 2020, Weghorst opened the scoring from a cheeky free-kick routine.
With Max Arnold stood over the ball in a dangerous position, he tricked the defence by rolling it into the feet of Weghorst.
The striker then turned on a sixpence, before firing into the back of the net.

Fast forward two years, Weghorst scored the EXACT same goal for Holland on Friday night, in a World Cup semi-final no less.
His equaliser against Argentina was on the other side of the box to his goal for Wolfsburg, but the routine was the same.
Teun Koopmeiners looked for all the world as he if he was going to have a crack at goal, only to roll the ball into Weghorst's feet.
Weghorst had originally got Holland back into the game with an 83rd minute header after Argentina had gone 2-0 up.

His goal from the free-kick then came in the ELEVENTH minute of time added on to send the World Cup quarter-final to extra-time.
Neither side found a winner in 30 minutes, so the game went to penalties.
And, despite some mind games from Weghorst, his dramatic brace turned out to be in vain.
Lionel Messi and Co won the shootout to set up a semi-final meeting with Croatia on Tuesday.
