1 European cup, 3 world cup finals and a history of turbulent in fighting amongst mostly petulant geniuses of the game. With a population of not even 17 million people, it is simply staggering just how many phenomenal players this nation has produced and the moments those players have contributed towards from Cruyff’s game changing total football movement, to the Dutch influenced Milan side that ruled football from the late eighties to early nineties to the young Ajax outfit who conquered Europe in the mid nineties.
But which man deserves his place in the next round?
Bobby Charlton (England)
Zinedine Zidane (France)
Franz Beckenbauer (Germany)
