Holland coach Bert van Marwijk has taken inspiration from former Dutch greats but insists comparisons cannot be drawn between his World Cup finalists and the 'total football' legends of the past.
Neither the 1974 nor 1978 sides were able to take that last step to become World Cup winners, but Van Marwijk believes this Holland side can overcome Spain to take the crown.
"This is the third time that we have reached the final but we live in another time. At that moment I thought the chance was very great that we will win the final," said Van Marwijk. "But you cannot compare this team with something that happened years ago."
