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.
