World Cup 2014: Thierry Henry says Dutch total football is back

BBC pundits Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer and Rio Ferdinand say 'total football' is back after the Netherlands demolished world champions Spain 5-1.

Total football was a playing style that became popularised in the 1970s with the Dutch team led by Johan Cruyff, and Henry believes that concept has returned after a sensational performance.

Shearer says Spain were "second best in every single department" while Ferdinand believes that it is the type of performance "you want to see at a World Cup".
