Dutch goalie breaks another major football record

A few days ago, Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar set a new record of going 1,032 minutes (a bit more than 11 matches) without conceding a goal, and now he’s on a roll. Van der Sar made Dutch and surely English news again this week by being the goalkeeper with the most minutes without conceding a goal in English football history. He reached the milestone of the 73rd minute of the game with Everton (1-0). With 1,104 minutes of ’empty goal’, he beat Steve Death of Reading (1978-1979 season).

Again, Edwin Van Der Sar is the guy in black. Can’t wait to see how long he goes without a goal.
