Schmeichel’s Denmark Maintain Perfect Start

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel made his 72nd appearance for Denmark, who made it four wins from four in Group F of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying on Wednesday.

- Kasper Schmeichel plays 90 minutes in Denmark’s 2-0 victory over Scotland in Copenhagen
- The shot-stopper’s nation maintained their 100 per cent record in Group F of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying
- Danny Ward also earned another cap for Wales in an international friendly against Finland

The Danes had scored 14 goals without reply heading into the clash with Steve Clarke’s Scotland at Parken Stadium, located in Schmeichel’s hometown of Copenhagen.

The hosts’ talented attack yielded two goals in the space of as many minutes in the first period, with Daniel Wass and Joakim Mæhle finding the target in the opening quarter-of-an-hour.

And that proved to be enough for the Danes, who have now scored 16 goals and are yet to concede in Group F, with an encounter with Faroe Islands next up at Tórsvøllur in Tórshavn on Saturday.
