During his 32nd cap for the Danes, Schmeichel was rarely tested in a warm-up fixture for both sides ahead of their respective FIFA World Cup campaigns this summer.

The biggest chance of the game fell to Sweden's Isaac Kiese-Thelin in the latter moments, but the Anderlecht striker sent his shot over the bar.

Denmark open in Russia against Peru on Saturday 16 June before tacking Australia, on Thursday 21 June, and France, on Tuesday 16 June.

Elsewhere, Adrien Silva and Ricardo Pereira did not feature for Portugal during the European champions' 0-0 draw with Belgium in Brussels. 

Hamza Choudhury, meanwhile, could continue to represent England U21s this month after their status as the best-placed second-placed side confirmed their spot in the Toulon Tournament semi-finals. 

As a result of Scotland's 2-1 win against South Korea on Saturday, England's progression to the last-four was confirmed, keeping their hopes of lifting the trophy for the third successive year alive. 

The Young Lions defeated Qatar 4-0 on Friday, with manager Aidy Boothroyd naming Choudhury among his substitutes.

Last week, the 20-year-old City Academy graduate made his international debut during a 1-0 success over China before also starting a 0-0 draw with Mexico on Tuesday. 

Also on Friday, Riyad Mahrez started and Islam Slimani emerged from the bench as Algeria were defeated 3-2 by Cape Verde Islands in an international friendly at Stade du 5 Juillet.

Yohan Benalouane, on the other hand, was named in Tunisia's World Cup squad after being an unused substitute during a 2-2 with Turkey at Switzerland's Stade de Geneve on Friday night.
