Georginio Wijnaldum was left hanging by Memphis Depay when he reached out with a fist bump during Wednesday’s friendly between the Netherlands and Spain.
The two sides drew 1-1 at the Amsterdam ArenA, with Sergio Canales opening the scoring for the visiting Spaniards and Man Utd’s Donny van de Beek levelling.
When Lyon star Depay left the fray, Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum tried to greet his Dutch teammate with the gesture but was left grinning ruefully.
Incidentally, it was Wijnaldum’s 30th birthday, and he started the game to earn his 68th cap for his country.
He has scored 18 goals in those matches.
