Johan Cruyff, in the Netherlands spelled as 'Johan Cruijff', is widely seen as the best Dutch player of all-time. In terms of reputation, only Puck Van Heel, Abe Lenstra, Faas Wilkes, Willem van Hanegem and Marco Van Basten had been able to match his popularity during their professional career. Nevertheless, Cruyff knocked Wilkes of his perch as most celebrated footballer and it remains to be seen if any Dutch player can ever match his status. During his career he played 709 official matches and scored exactly 400 goals. Originally schooled as a winger and out-and-out striker in a 4-2-4 system, he became at the end of the 1960s one of the archetypical false-nines. 10 goals of these 400 in total are penalty-kicks. It is estimated that he made around 40 goals with his head. The number of goals scored out of a free kick is negligible (estimitated as not much higher than five).
