Tim Krul Proves He's The Master Of Penalties With Brilliant Trick Vs Spurs

Tim Krul proved he's the penalty king last night by having every Tottenham Hotspur player's penalty routine written on his water bottle.

Krul saved two penalties as Norwich City beat Spurs in a shootout in the FA Cup fifth round on Wednesday night.

Footage has emerged showing how elite the Dutch goalkeeper's preparation is.


He took a drink from his water before every Spurs player stepped up and commentators assumed it was to put his opponents off.

Fans on Twitter have reacted to Krul's unique idea and praised him for the shootout performance.




The 31-year-old save penalties from Troy Parrott and Gedson Fernandes to help the Canaries to their first FA Cup quarter-final in 28 years after a 1-1 draw.

Spurs had taken the lead in the first half through Jan Vertonghen but never looked convincing.

Norwich equalised via Josip Drmic 12 minutes from time to give the Premier League's bottom side hope.

Despite Kenny McLean missing the first penalty, Norwich overcame Spurs 3-2 in the shootout.

They will welcome the winner of tonight's tie between Derby County and Manchester United tie in the next round.

One huge talking point from last night was Spurs midfielder Eric Dier's confrontation with a fan.

Dier launched himself into the stands after the clash and was involved in an alleged altercation with a fan.

Spurs manager Jose Mourinho later suggested that the incident was to do with his 'young brother'.

Mourinho explained in his post-match press conference: "I don't think that belongs to the game.

"The game was a fantastic representation of the FA Cup, but I cannot run away from the question.

"I think Eric Dier did what we as professionals cannot do, but when someone insults you and your family is involved, especially your young brother."
