Edwin van der Sar comes out of retirement, saves penalty for boyhood club

Presumably life after football is proving to be far too boring for former Manchester United stopper Edwin van der Sar, who, at the age of 45, laced up for his former amateur side Noordwijk vs Jodan Boys on Saturday.

In the one-off game, van der Sar proved their is still some spring in his legs after he repelled a penalty drilled down low to his left. There was a healthy show of arrogance as well from the Dutchman, as he used one of the oldest tricks in the book, after pointing in the direction the penalty taker should place his shot.

As you can in the video, the trick did enough to put the penalty taker off.
