Kasper Schmeichel made his first start in a major international tournament for Denmark as they topped Peru 1-0 in their opening Group C fixture of the 2018 World Cup on Saturday.
Schmeichel kept a clean sheet as a Yussuf Poulsen's second-half goal was enough for the Danes to take all three points. The Leicester City goalkeeper dodged a nervy moment when Peru's Christian Cueva fired over the bar from a penalty in the 45th minute but made some crucial saves down the stretch to ensure the victory. Schmeichel denied Edison Flores shortly after Poulsen's finish, and then stopped a point-blank effort from Jefferson Farfan with just six minutes remaining. The clean sheet was Schmeichel's five consecutive in international play. Denmark, now second place in Group C behind France, face Australia in their second match on Thursday. Jun 18 - 12:39 PM
