Van der Sar says Doei!

Following Netherlands' 3-1[AET] loss to Russia goalkeeper Edwin van Der Sar has bid goodbye to international football.

He earned a record 128th cap for the men in Orange.After the game he didn't make excuses on the loss and like a true sportsman acknowledged that the other team was better and they didn't make much of the chances that were presented to them.He has been part of quarter finals and semi finals but has never won a final or reached a final for that matter.He looks set to continue his club career with Manchester United where he played a huge role in their Champions League victory on penalties to Chelsea.He also claimed Netherlands could have won had the game gone into penalties but that wasn't the case.

At the age of 37 and still playing,that's a great achievement for any player but to be as quick and fragile as Van der Sar is,it's just commendable.
