Man United fans were loving Kasper Schmeichel’s form against Croatia

first_imgThere was another pulsating game at the 2018 World Cup as Croatia and Denmark battled it out for a place in the World Cup quarter-finals.It was Croatia who just about came out on top – winning 3-2 on penalties after goals from Mathias Jorgensen and Mario Mandzukic made the game 1-1 after extra-time. Croatia came out on top despite Schmeichel’s heroics Schmeichel celebrates Denmark’s opening goal 2 2 I will say this: if De Gea ever leaves it’s GOT to be Schmeichel for #MUFC doesn’t it?! 🙈 🙊— Tendai Chetse (@CreateTC) July 1, 2018 talkSPORT are with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network. If De Gea decides to go to to Real Madrid surely Kasper Schmeichel will then be on Manchester United’s radar…#WorldCup #MUFC pic.twitter.com/eNStbrxXvU— Ťhe Àlçhëmisť (@Lecron) July 1, 2018 However, this did not prevent Manchester United fans from congratulating Schmeichel – who is the son of Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel.One fan likened Schmeichel Jr’s save to that of the dramatic stop his dad made to deny Dennis Bergkamp from the spot during United’s 2-1 FA Cup semi-final victory over Arsenal in their treble winning 1998/99 season.Other fans also suggested the 31-year-old would be an ideal replacement for David De Gea if the Spaniard was ever to leave Old Trafford.Below you can see the best tweets on Schmeichel below. Schmeichel saves a last gasp penalty in dramatic circumstances. Villa Park, 1999, anyone? 😉 #MUFC #WorldCup — NoComment (@HasinNoComment) July 1, 2018 If by any chance De Gea leaves, i would love it if Kasper Schmeichel comes to United ! #MUFC— Mohamed (@hunterutd626) July 1, 2018 However, the most dramatic moment of the contest came a couple of minutes before the end of extra-time when Luka Modric was handed a brilliant chance to snatch the win for Zlatko Dalic’s men.But Danish keeper Kasper Schmeichel had other ideas and brilliantly got down to his left to breathe new life into the tense tie at Nizhny Novgorod.The Leicester man went on to save two more penalties but it was his opposite number Danijel Subasic who was the hero after saving three penalties in the shootout to ensure Croatia will face host nation Russia next. The #MUFC legend Peter Schmeichel celebrating his son Kasper’s penalty save in extra time is the moment of the #WorldCup for me so far. #Family— Stephen Blevins (@stephenblevins9) July 1, 2018last_img read more
