Video: Kasper Schmeichel Seals Leicester’s Place In Champions League Quarter-Final With Penalty Save

Leicester City booked their place in the Champions League quarter-final this evening and they had one man to thank for it.

Goals from Wes Morgan and Marc Albrighton fired the Foxes into a two-goal lead but goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was the hero on the night.

The tie could have been so much different had Samir Nasri netted in the opening five minutes but Schmeichel pulled off a wonder save to keep his side in the tie.

But the Danish international’s best moment came with ten minutes left after Steven N’Zonzi was given the chance to pull one back for Sevilla from the penalty spot.

Schmiechel himself had given the foul away after bringing down Vitolo in the box but he more than made up for it after diving low and saving N’Zonzi’s spot kick.

The former Falkirk man’s heroics sealed a historic quarter-final spot for Leicester, much to the delight of club legend Gary Lineker.

Wash your mouth out, Gary!
