Former Manchester United stars were back together at Wembley.


Former Manchester United favourites Gary Neville and Ruud van Nistelrooy were reunited at Wembley last night as England took on the Netherlands.

Neville is currently the assistant coach to England boss Roy Hodgson, while Van Nistelrooy is working in the same role for the Dutch side.

The duo were mainstays of the Manchester United side of yesteryear, with Neville featuring for almost two decades under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Van Nistelrooy's time at Old Trafford was more brief by comparison, but he made a big impact, scoring 150 goals in 219 games. Neville by comparison played 602 games for the Red Devils, scoring seven times.

He is now working also as the coach of La Liga side Valencia until the end of the season, when he will head to Euro 2016 with England. Van Nistelrooy will not be doing so, with Holland failing to qualify despite the abundance of talent available to them.
