Cruyff was also a superb manager as well, winning the European Cup with Barcelona in 1992, the Cup Winners' Cup in 1987 with Ajax, and the Cup Winners' Cup again with Barcelona in 1989. He also won the La Liga four times in a row with Barcelona between 1991 and 1994The Dutch continued to dominate with their taunting game of possession football, but they couldn’t have foreseen what would happen next. In the 25th minute a surging run from Bernd Hölzenbein was brought to an abrupt end as he threw himself over a tackle with the ball running out of his reach. Taylor blew for a penalty, although to many in the crowd it appeared to be a schwalbe, the German term for what the English would call a dive, something that Hölzenbein had quite a reputation for. ““That was his speciality,” Franz Beckenbauer has recalled. Sepp Maier agrees. “I have no penalty. Those who knew Hölzenbein knew very well. He simply flew over.”
For the second time in three years no less. I was somehow expecting it because I had a feeling Griezmann would step up with Torres being suspended, and Barcelona seems to be in a bit of a slump of late.
