The Real Madrid forward has had tense relations with Van Basten since last year´s World Cup, but is now available for Euro 2008 qualifying although he did not feature in Friday´s squad for friendlies with South Korea and Thailand.
Van Basten revealed that fences had been mended with 30-year-old Van Nistelrooy, saying: "A good phone conversation has made this possible. He´s (Van Nistelrooy) laid the basis for a return of Van Nistelrooy to the Oranje."
