Goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar is the hero as Manchester United lift the Community Shield with a penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea.

The Dutch keeper saved three penalties in a row to give United victory.

Ryan Giggs had put United ahead after 35 minutes, lashing the ball into the top of the net after a slick move.

But Chelsea drew level before half-time when new signing Florent Malouda raced on to a long ball from Ashley Cole and poked the ball past Van der Sar.
