Brad Friedel 298713k Spurs keeper Brad Friedel talks about the art of saving penalties on RTE [Video]Spurs keeper Brad Friedel is keeping busy on the punditry circuit during the World Cup.

Having appeared on BBC in Brazil just last week, the American keeper flew into Dublin, Ireland, to appear on RTE’s World Cup panel.

Friedel discussed the art of saving penalties, and the psychology behind it from a keeper’s perspective.
