World Records Academy recognize Duckadam performance

World Records Academy last weekend announced the recognition of Ro­ma­nian Goalkeeper Helmuth Ducka­dam who saved four consecutive penalties in a shoot-out to save Steaua Bucharest (against FC Barcelona) and won the final of the European Cup on May 7, 1986 – setting the world record for first goalkeeper who saved four consecutive penalties in an official international competition, the official website worldrecordsacademy.org announced. “The hero of the match was the Romanian goalie, Helmut Ducka­dam: he saved all the Spanish penalties. The final result was 2-0 for Steaua and Bucharest saw the biggest celebrations until the 1989 Revo­lution. Helmut Duckadam, the mustachioed keeper who saved all four Barcelona spot kicks, is still remembered by Catalans. People remember that Barcelona were huge favourites that night but they ended up in dreadful shape. And what made it worse was the fact the game took place in Spain,” writes the website.
