I remember my dad taking to see the '74 WC final which was being shown at Madison Square Garden (the game was not broadcast on American television!). Lots of atmosphere inside the arena, with German fans heavily outnumbering the Dutch supporters (this was before the popularization of football in the U.S. - the crowd had few neutrals and almost no women or kids). From the kickoff Cruyff wove through the what seemed like the entire German team until Uli Hoeness(?) brought him down inside the area. Neeskens converted and the Dutch were ahead w/o the Germans having even touched the ball!
