  • Description

    The Burch team (wearing dark shorts) were soon attacking the Bulgarian goal. After only five minutes Cruyff was brought down in the penalty area and the referee awarded a penalty. This was taken by Johan Meeskens, who scord to put Holland in the lead.

    In the 44th minute Holland was awarded another penalty when Jansen was brought down by the Bulgarian defender, Velitschkov. Again, Neeskens scored from the penalty spot to make the score 2 - 0 for Holland. In the second half Holland were awarded a free kick which landed in the goal area for Rep of Holland to bang home and make the score 3 - 0. With the Bulgarian manager and reserves watching gloomily from the touchline, it seemed to be all Holland, but the Bulgaria broke away and got the Dutch defence into a tangle - so much so that the Dutch defender Ruud Kro, in trying to clear the ball from the goal-line, scored an own goal to make the score Holland 3, Bulgaria 1. With the crowd cheering the Dutch attacked again and in the 87th minute Theo de Jong scored the fourth of Holland's goals to put Bulgaria out of the competition.
