Former Holland striker Dick Nanninga has died at the age of 66, the Dutch Football Association has announced.
Nanninga only played 15 times for the national team between 1978 and 1981 but wrote his name into Dutch football folklore by scoring in the 1978 World Cup final against Argentina.
He equalised with a towering header eight minutes from time to level the score at 1-1 before hosts Argentina eventually went on to win 3-1 in extra-time.

Nanninga had earlier created history in the tournament when, in a match against West Germany, he became the first substitute ever to be sent off at a World Cup.
The Groningen-born forward began his senior career at Veendam before moving on to Roda, where he became the club's top scorer with 107 goals.
