As it has been with several other all-time greats, the difficulties of getting the rights to players who are no longer active has kept Cruyff out of more recent FIFA games' Classic XI teams, but he did make an appearance in FIFA 2000 as a member of the Ajax 1970–1973 team. FIFA 2000's classic teams were especially cool because if you pitted one against another, the game would be played with an old-timey filter that gave everything a sepia tint. But sepia tint or no, Cruyff was not to be messed with. The pillar of Rinus Michels' "Total Football" system pioneered at Ajax and brought to the Netherlands' national team in the '70s, Cruyff might have played CF, but he could create from the midfield or wing just as well as he could finish.
