'One of best saves I've EVER seen' – Watch Schmeichel's stunning stop in Denmark's World Cup clash against Tunisia | The Sun

KASPER SCHMEICHEL produced "one of the best saves ever" in Denmark's opening World Cup game against Tunisia.

The veteran goalkeeper left Leicester for Nice in the summer but he proved he has not lost his touch.



Shortly before half-time Tunisia carved open a one-on-one for Issam Jebali.

The striker kept his composure and tried to lift the ball over Schmeichel, only for the Dane to somehow claw the ball away.

It was a magnificent save that defied the odds and left ITV's co-commentator John Hartson purring.

The former Arsenal striker compared Schmeichel to his father Peter as he gushed over the stop.
