Holland 1-0 Cameroon
Ruud van Nistelrooy
Van Nistelrooy's future at Man Utd is uncertain
Manchester United's Ruud van Nistelrooy put his troubles with his club to one side by helping Holland beat Cameroon in a World Cup warm-up match.

Van Nistelrooy's future at Old Trafford is in doubt.

However, Andre Ooijer picked up a 40-yard pass from Joris Mathijsen and flicked the ball on for Van Nistelrooy, who scored from close range.

Cameroon keeper Idris Kamemi and his defence were kept busy, mainly by Arsenal striker Robin van Persie.

The Gunners star combined with Mark van Bommel to create a chance for Van Nistelrooy who had his close-range effort saved by Kameni and he was also involved in the move that saw Philip Cocu denied by the alert keeper.

Cameroon's best chance came just before the half-time break when Osasuna's Pierre Webo forced a lightning-reaction save from Edwin van der Sar.

The African side, who failed to qualify for the World Cup, had Alioum Saidou sent off late on.

The Dutch face Mexico on Thursday and Australia three days later in their final friendlies before beginning their World Cup campaign against Serbia and Montenegro on 11 June.
