Javier Hernandez and Ruud van Nistelrooy catch up in Amsterdam
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.
