Van der Sar preaches caution

Published Add your comment

Holland captain Edwin van der Sar claims he is too long in the tooth to be carried away by his team´s sensational start to Euro 2008.

The Dutch have taken the tournament by storm in smashing a total of seven goals past 2006 World Cup finalists Italy and France to secure top spot in Group C and cruise into the quarter-finals.

But skipper Van der Sar, a veteran of more than 120 caps for his country, is preaching caution ahead of the knockout stages. "I have been going around for a long time and to be in the quarter-finals is nice, but it doesn´t bring you any silverware," the Manchester United goalkeeper, 37, warned.
