Football's greatest players.Johan Cruyff

Football's greatest players.Johan Cruyff

The Dutch International was the complete player,great balance, electric acceleration and a tremendous vision ,which allowed the centre forward to pop up on the pitch almost anywhere.Cruyff epitomised the total football the Holland team presented to us in the 1974 World Cup. He had millions of people watching in amazement that year at the mesmerising "Cruyff turn"that left defenders spreadeagled.
He won his first football medals at the age of 19,but the consistent Cruyff would attain 21 football league and cup medals spanning three decades.

One of the finest goalscorers Germany has ever produced, his record of almost a goal a game in the finals was outstanding and "Der Bomber" was always devastating whoever the opposition.Most of his goals were scored from inside the penalty area, and nearly always from nothing.
Muller played in two World Cup Finals and although he scored 10 goals inMexico 70, the poacher would have to wait another four years to collect his winners medal.
