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.
