Can you name Man Utd’s XI from Ruud van Nistelrooy’s debut vs Fulham?


Manchester United fans had to be patient to see Ruud van Nistelrooy in action, but he was worth the wait. 

After a long-running transfer saga, he eventually signed for the club for a £19million fee on April 23, 2001, and made an iconic debut on August 19 in United’s opening Premier League fixture of the season at home to Fulham.

Few will forget that the Van Nistelrooy scored twice in a dramatic comeback 3-2 victory, but how well do you remember the rest of the line-up Sir Alex Ferguson opted for that day?
