A shot-stopper that has developed into a dependable No1 for club and country, Kasper Schmeichel has emerged from the shadow of his famous goalkeeping father, Peter, to forge a successful career in his own right. After various spells in England’s lower divisions and Scotland, the former Manchester City youth trainee found a home in Leicester City when he signed in 2011.

Showing goalkeeping traits reminiscent of his father when he was in his prime, Schmeichel’s efforts with the Foxes not only played a key role in their remarkable run to the English Premier League title in 2015/16, he became a regular selection for the Danes during their 2018 FIFA World Cup™ qualifying campaign. On the road to Russia, Schmeichel recorded four clean sheets in nine qualifiers for the Scandinavian nation.
