Johan Cruyff

The Football Fives Podcast has a few little formats we like to revisit every now and then, and one of our favourites is the five-a-side team. We're nerdy like that. And, you know, that's kind of what a football five is, really. This week's episode is probably the one team we've been looking forward to the most.

Of all the world's football nations, few can match the Netherlands for impact, aura and nostalgia, three of our unspoken criteria. Yeah, Brazil are kind of a thing. Argentina and Germany are already done and dusted from a Football Fives point of view, and England, of course, hold special resonance for three of our number. But the Dutch...oh man, the Dutch!

The panel have picked five players each from the Netherlands and fight for their inclusion in the official F5 team. Daniel Storey, David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee pick their way through and argue the toss over the greatest Dutch players ever. Who makes it in? Find out within.
