Kasper Schmeichel revealed he told the referee about being targeted by a laser pointer during Denmark’s Euro 2020 semi-final defeat to England.
UEFA have charged England over the use of a laser pointer by an unknown fan in Wembley, with TV cameras catching the incident during the game.
Schmeichel saved Harry Kane’s penalty in the match and the Denmark goalkeeper confirmed he was not affected for the spot-kick.

“Yes, I did not experience it on the penalty kick because it was behind me on my right side.
“But I experienced it in the second half. I told the referee and he went to say something to the other officials.”
Schmeichel was powerless to stop Kane firing in the rebound and England into the Euro 2020 final as a result.

The stopper was in inspired form for his country and has established himself as a real leader for Denmark after an emotional rollercoaster of a tournament for the Danes.
Christian Eriksen’s heart attack on the pitch in their first group game rocked the world as well as the Danish team and Schmeichel said the players weren’t ready to say goodbye to each other just yet.
"I think the best memory I have is just of this team and of this country,” he said.
"Just the togetherness and the fact we’ve been together for nearly six weeks and we’re still not ready to say goodbye is very telling.
"We’ve always said playing for this country is very special to us and it certainly hasn’t changed.
