Quite the start for Neil Etheridge!
Fil-British goalkeeper Neil Etheridge's superb start to his English Premier League career has earned him a couple of Player of the Month nominations.
The Philippine Azkals and Cardif City keeper is nominated on both the EA Sports Player of the Month and Premier League Player of the Month ballots for the month of August, alongside the likes of Sadio Mane, Benjamin Mendy, and Lucas Moura.
In just three matches in the Premier League so far, Etheridge has already made quite some history by being the first Filipino and Southeast Asian to play in English Football's highest stage, and only the second player in Premier League history to save two penalty attempts in his first two matches.
Etheridge has also already recorded a back-to-back clean sheets in just three matches played.
Cardiff City currently possesses a two draw-one loss slate for two points.
