The iconic ‘Cruyff turn’ as executed at the 1974 World Cup and animated by Case Jernigan for B/R
One favourite Cruyff move was to stop dead, then accelerate away. Few defenders could cope.
Another was the famous Cruyff turn, captured close up during a 1974 World Cup match against Sweden.
He would shape to cross, and if the defender attempted a block, he would turn himself inside out and
dance free in the opposite direction.
