Its van Nistelrooy here in England but it says van Nistelrooij on the UEFA website. I think only the players themselves would know the correct way of spelling it.

I've read somewhere sometime ago that Kuijt had to change his name to Kuyt to play for the dutch NT or whatever, since they said he was born in Yugoslavia.

I've also read that van Nistelrooy is van Nistelrooij's commercial name, that's why that appears on his shirt.
