Holland owns the title as the best team never to win the FIFA World Cup„¬ a dubious distinction they almost shed four years ago when they lost the final in extra time to Spain. It marked Oranje€s record third defeat in the title tilt. Holland played in FIFA World Cups„ of 1934 and 1938 but failed to win a game or reach another tournament until 1974. That year in Germany manager Rinus Michels and his star man Johan Cruyff revolutionized both Oranje's fortunes and the sport at large via a Total Football approach. Players were encouraged to exploit space opponents allowed and not be restricted to their own positions; Rather, they played a free-flowing, attacking and beautiful style. Holland, which has always been known for producing world-class talent thanks to their unique youth system and approach, have made it out of the Group Stage in all five tournaments they€ve qualified for since then.
