Twitter plaudits flood in for Leicester City hero Schmeichel

Kasper Schmeichel put in a man-of-the-match performance on Wednesday night as Leicester City kept themselves in contention for a quarter-final spot in the Champions League.

Claudio Ranieri’s men were beaten 2-1 by Sevilla in Spain, but Jamie Vardy’s away goal means that the Foxes still have a good chance of winning the last-16 tie at the King Power Stadium next month.

The striker’s goal was crucial, but it may not have meant as much if Schmeichel had not made some vital saves.

The 30-year-old also stopped Joaquin Correa from finding the back of the net when the Sevilla man was awarded a penalty in the 14th minute.

The Spanish outfit peppered Leicester’s goal with 23 shots and Schmeichel managed to stop seven of them that were on target.

It has been a miserable season for the Premier League champions domestically as they face a relegation battle, but they still have an opportunity to upset the odds and become European winners.

After the match football fans took to Twitter to sing the praises of Schmeichel.
