Manchester United legend Van der Sar saves penalty in comeback game

Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar saved a penalty after coming out of retirement at the age of 45 to play for a Dutch amateur team.

Van der Sar answered an SOS after VV Noordwijk – his first senior club – were left without cover when their keeper picked up an injury.

The fourth-tier match against Jodan Boys ended 1-1 after Van der Sar saved an early penalty.

He is not expected to play for the club again.
