Van der Sar ensures United are spot on

Published Add your comment

Manchester United won the FA Community Shield on penalties thanks to goalkeeping hero Edwin Van der Sar.

The Dutch goalkeeper pulled off superb penalty saves to deny Claudio Pizarro, Frank Lampard and Shaun Wright-Phillips and earn United revenge for their FA Cup final defeat last May.

The game had finished 1-1 in normal time with Florent Malouda levelling for Chelsea after Ryan Giggs had given United a 35th minute lead.
