Despite suffering a 1-0 defeat at the hands of ADO Den Haag on Saturday, 25-year-old Sparta Rotterdam keeper Roy Kortsmit was still a hero after producing an amazing quadruple save to keep the visitors in the match 10 minutes after half-time.

Travelling to the Cars Jeans Stadion on Saturday, the Sparta Rotterdam youth product took centre stage to make four saves in less than six seconds. Despite a second-half goal from Abdenasser El Khayati settling the tie in favour of the hosts, Kortsmit's heroics was the main talking point at full-time.

Den Haag were without star man Ricardo Kishna, currently on loan from Lazio, for the game on Saturday, the Dutch winger suffering cruciate ligament damage in a 1-1 draw with Ajax last week.

For Sparta Rotterdam, the oldest professional team in the Netherlands, the defeat on Saturday compiled further misery onto what has been a tough season. With just five points this season, thanks to draws against PEC Zwolle (1-1) and NAC Breda (2-2), as well as an unlikely victory against FC Twente (1-0), Sparta Rotterdam currently sit in 15th place in the Eredivisie table.
