An impressive Club landmark was reached in style as Schmeichel kept a clean sheet and helped Denmark earn a vital victory to move them joint-top of Group D of UEFA 2020 European Championships qualifying.

City’s shot-stopper was Denmark’s Man of the Match, having made a series of outstanding saves during a memorable night for the hosts at Telia Parken.

RB Leipzig striker Yussuf Poulsen scored late on in Copenhagen as the Danes clinched all three points to boost their chances of reaching next summer's tournament. 

All 50 of Schmeichel's outings for Denmark have come during the Dane's eight-year spell at the Football Club to date, a passage of time which includes two FIFA World Cups.

The Foxes goalkeeper could become the Club's outright highest international appearance maker while at Leicester City when Denmark take on Luxembourg in a friendly on Tuesday evening in Aalborg.

Meanwhile, City youngster Luke Thomas played 90 minutes for England's Under-19s in their 4-2 win over Belgium at the Marbella Football Centre on Saturday afternoon. Young Foxes defender Vontae Daley-Campbell was an unused substitute in Spain.

First team stars Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans, Dennis Praet and Danny Ward could all feature for their respective nations around the world on Sunday.
