Gianluca Pagliuca reckons that Inter’s Samir Handanovic can go on to save more than his record 24 penalties in Serie A.

After denying Luca Toni’s effort from 12 yards in the game drawn on Sunday night with Verona, the Slovenian ‘keeper is on course to surpass Pagliuca’s major achievement in his career.
