Javier Hernandez may play for Real Madrid but the Mexico striker still appeared awe struck when he met former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Hernandez, who is on a season-long loan at Madrid from Old Trafford, scored the winner as Mexico were 3-2 winners against Netherlands at Amsterdam Arena on Wednesday night.

The 26-year-old followed in the footsteps of Van Nistelrooy after deciding to leave United, albeit temporarily, to seal a move to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

And United supporters will be feeling nostalgic at the sight of the clinical strikers after Hernandez posted a photo with Nistelrooy to Instagram.

Hernandez wrote on Instagram: “Thanks Amsterdam for a good experience! Here a pic with the legend #RuudvanNistelrooy”

Hernandez scored 37 goals in 102 Premier League appearances for United, while Van Nistelrooy netted 95 strikes in 150 appearances.
