Ruud van Nistelrooy underlined his importance to Holland´s Euro 2008 campaign with his side´s only goal in the 1-1 friendly draw against Denmark.

Van Nistelrooy, Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben and goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar all returned to the Oranje side after being rested by coach Marco van Basten for the 3-0 victory over Ukraine last weekend and all made a good impression.

But Christian Poulsen struck after 56 minutes to equalise Van Nistelrooy´s 30th-minute effort, meaning Holland had to be content with a draw.
