June 27: Cruyff blames immigration minister for Dutch World Cup failure
"I want to say in particular that the minister is there to serve the country's interests and she clearly didn't do that. Not just for the World Cup, but for the coming ten years. I compare this to the technical director at a professional team. If a great player like Kalou would come to my club and the manager would send him away, he would have to draw his conclusions. The same goes for Verdonk."
June 29: "The Dutch coalition government is in crisis after junior partner D66 sided with a motion of no confidence in Immigration Minister Rita Verdonk."
Update, 9pm: The Dutch cabinet resigns.
