Kasper Schmeichel wielded some powerful mechanics to deny Chelsea a certain goal in the 86th minute of the FA Cup final at Wembley.
The Leicester goalkeeper burst leftward and powerfully deflected away a crisp goalbound effort from Mason Mount late in the game as the Foxes won 1-0 to win their first-ever FA Cup title.
In a game that was overshadowed by Youri Tielemans’ piledriver in the second half, the Danish goalkeeper’s effort should not be understated as he showed lovely footwork to maximise his reaction time and used his left hand to parry away the ball to safety.
