Arjen ROBBEN - Wesley SNEIJDER rivalry

Before the 2014 World Cup, Louis van Gaal said "Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder are Holland's two main men". 
The Dutch National manager singled Bayern Munich man Robben and Galatasaray midfielder Sneijder as his two key players for Brazil. What a opprtunity for a manager to have this two impact players in the same team. And if we have a look back we have the same feeling that they always playing togeteher under the "oranje" kit. Here it comes the stickers from 2004 to 2014 :
A real collusion between the two men under the national shirt over the years :
They also played together at Real Madrid between 2007 and 2009 :
Even when they were opponents during the Champion's League final of 2010 between Bayern of Munchen and Inter Milan they still friends :
It's very simple they look so close in their friendship over the years than if they haven't been football players they could be together in a boys band (with RVP too) :
But there is a but... When they're younger they played each one in the two main teams in Netherlands. Arjen Robben for the PSV Eindhoven and Wesley Sneijder for Ajax Amsterdam :
And as you know the rivalry between Ajax and PSV is one of the main football rivalries of European football and the both national heroes don't avoid the traditionnal fight between PSV and Ajax players. Have a look of this amazing picture whith Robben who wants to struggle his future national partner ! (with Mateja Kezman in the back and not interesting by the fighting)
