Man Utd and Liverpool target Djordje Petrovic sets new record with latest penalty save for New England Revolution
- Petrovic saves fifth penalty in MLS
- Fastest to five penalty saves
- Helps the Revs remain top
WHAT HAPPENED? Liverpool and Manchester United target Djorde Petrovic managed to help New England Revolution to a draw against FC Cincinnati as he spectacularly saved a 30th-minute penalty from Luciano Acosta. This was the Serbian's fifth penalty save in MLS having played only 31 games so far, a record in the league.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The penalty save helped the Revs draw against their current Eastern Conference rivals, a result that helped New England maintain their first place over FC Cincinnati. His performance will also put more sets of eyeballs on the keeper who might get a summer move to Europe.
