Episode Summary

Johan Neeskens - Netherlands, 1974
The Netherlands' 1974 squad was the epitome of total football, so it shouldn't have been a surprise that it managed its first goal before West Germany even touched the ball. After Johan Cruyff was brought down in the box after one of his glorious runs down the field, it was the midfielder Neeskens, a spot-kick specialist, who took the penalty. When he netted the attempt -- only 90 seconds into the game -- he also earned the record for the fastest goal in World Cup history.moreless
