One more season for Edwin
23 Jun 2008 - 13:33:03
Manchester United's veteran Dutch goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar is looking forward to one more season at Old Trafford, having ended his illustrious international career.
The 37-year-old could not prevent the Netherlands from losing 3-1 to Russia in the quarter-finals of Euro 2008 and has bowed out of the Dutch set-up without securing a major title, having won a record 128 caps.
Van der Sar said: "I will have one last season in the Premier League but, yes, my international career is over.
"I think we had a great tournament and unfortunately we couldn't produce the level of play that we did in the first two games against Italy and France.
"We created too few chances ourselves and gave too much away. Russia played very well, we did not and that hurts.
"You have one bad game in the knockout stages and you are out. That's the way it is.
"These are the tournaments I will miss most, they are the nicest to experience. I have reached quarter-finals and semi-finals, but that's not enough. You always want more than that.
"Every two years there is only one team that wins the tournament and, in my playing days, that has not been for me to experience. But I have enjoyed it, that's for sure."
