Watch as Sparta Rotterdam’s keeper Roy Kortsmit makes two penalty saves in two minutes against AZ Alkmaar!
Sparta Rotterdam and AZ played an entertaining match in Dutch league.
AZ won 0-2, after being the better team on the night. Wout Weghorst scored the two goals, and comically missed two penalties.
Roy Kortsmit was the player that denied Weghorst twice from the spot, despite still conceding two goals against Weghorst.
In a way, Kortsmit was the hero of the match, much like Weghorst.

AZ got a penalty, after an obvious foul. Weghorst took the shot, but the goalkeeper saved the shot, and put the ball out for a corner kick. Referees took their time, and eventually decided that one of Sparta’s players ran in the penalty area too soon, so the penalty had to be taken again.
Again, Weghorst took the penalty kick, but again Kortsmit saved the penalty.
That’s how both players managed to became heroes for their clubs.
Two fantastic penalty saves that didn’t change anything in this match, apart Sparta not lose bigger than 0-2.
