With all the Champs League and Coppa Italia on schedule, you may have missed the MLS game with D.C. United traveling to the west to Cascadia to face the Portland Timbers. The major talking point of the game was when 20-year old United goalkeeper Bill Hamid saved 2 penalty kicks. Each time the assistant referee flagged the keeper for coming off his line. The 3rd time, Portland switched their PK player from Cooper to Jewsbury who scored the 3rd attempt.
Based on witnessing regular international PKs goalkeepers frequently come off the line. With that being said, the shooters usually bury their chances. Good job on the stops Mr. Hamid, maybe the league wants to see more goals that's all.
