Appropriately in the 14th minute of the game — Cruyff famously wore the No. 14 — the entire stadium stood and applauded for a minute-long tribute for the former Oranje star. An image of Cruyff beamed up on the big screen throughout, while the iconic Wembley arch lit up in orange.
The minute-long standing ovation was, in a way, the second time the Three Lions paid homage to Cruyff. During Saturday’s wild 3-2 win over Germany, Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane ignited England’s comeback with a great goal after performing a perfect "Cruyff Turn," the Barcelona legend’s trademark move.
Cruyff, who is credited for revolutionizing the Beautiful Game both on the pitch and from the bench, died after a battle with lung cancer last Thursday. He was 68.
