Late soccer great Johan Cruyff was honored with a stoppage during the 14th minute of the friendly between the Netherlands and France on Friday.

Cruyff, who died of lung cancer Thursday at the age of 68, was a three-time Ballon d’Or winner. He won three straight European Cups with Ajax, while also playing for the Dutch national team and Barcelona.

Cruyff retired from soccer in 1978 and later managed Barcelona to its first European Cup victory in 1992.

He was diagnosed with cancer in October.
