Daley Blind and Stefan de Vrij were no doubt swapping stories about their new clubs as the Netherlands pair posed for a photo ahead of their trip to Prague.
The Netherlands are set to face the Czech Republic in a tough Euro 2016 qualifier in Group A on Tuesday night as Guus Hiddink looks to make a winning start to his reign in charge of the Oranje.
World Cup star Blind is included in the former Chelsea manager’s squad after the 24-year-old completed a £14m move to United from Ajax in the summer transfer window.
Blind’s Netherlands team-mate De Vrij was linked with a move to Old Trafford as Louis van Gaal took up the reins of his new club, although a move never materialised.
Instead, the 22-year-old centre-half joined Serie A outfit Lazio in an undisclosed fee as Van Gaal signed Argentina international Marcos Rojo to strengthen his defence.
“Off we go! #DutchTeam #EK @stefandevrij3,” Blind posted.
The Netherlands are joined by Czech Republic, Turkey, Iceland, Latvia and Kazakhstan in Group A.
