That wouldn't surprise me.


But did he ever mention it in connection to his decision?

You're probably on the money Syntax. I recall a quote from Cruyff about not wanting to play football metres away from torture chambers? Maybe it was just a smokescreen to keep the kidnapping plot quite? As you say though, you can imagine Cruyff being quite political. 


The other story from 78 is Scotland beating Netherlands 3-2. Is there not also doubt about this game as the Netherlands did not want to top the group as that meant playing Argentina in the next group phase. 


One other memory was France wearing a green and white striped jersey (donated by a local club) due to strip mix up?
