Anyone recall an outfield player wearing the No1 jersey in a World Cup game?

Argentina's Norberto Alonso (1978) and Osvaldo Ardiles (1982). Forward, Sergio Almiron, had de #1 jersey in 1986, but didn't make an appearance.

Ruud Greels 1974 for holland, they used to number alphabetically. Cruyff should have no.1 but he. Was allowed to wear 14. Greels end up with no.1
