MANCHESTER UNITED legend Peter Schmeichel has shared a picture of him and son Kasper ahead of Denmark’s match against England.
Schmeichel Jr, 34, will be in goal for the Danes as they look to reach the final of the Euros for the first time in 29 years.

His dad Peter, who won the competition in 1992, has shared a picture of his son
The ex-United stopper’s picture is believed to be from 1992, when Denmark defeated Germany to become European champions.
Schmeichel started the final in Gothenburg, keeping a clean sheet to help his nation win 2-0 and secure their first major trophy.
The dad appears to be playing ‘rock, paper, scissors’ with Kasper on board an aeroplane.
The picture is captioned: “So excited for tonight. Come on Denmark.”
Kasper has followed in his father’s footsteps by becoming a top European goalkeeper, winning the Premier League and FA Cup at Leicester.
He’s also Denmark’s undisputed No1 stopper and will pick up his 71st cap at Wembley on Wednesday evening.
The Scandanvian nation will play England in London after reaching the semi-finals of Euro 2020.
Kasper Hjulmand’s side have a good record against their opponents – beating them 1-0 last October – but England are favourites to progress.
Schmeichel Jr has been dishing out the trash talk ahead of the game, taunting England’s failure to win the Euros previously.
But Three Lions skipper Harry Kane will be confident of scoring tonight after hitting FOURTEEN against Denmark’s No1 in previous meetings.
The winner of Wednesday evening’s game will play Italy in the final on Sunday, July 11 after the Azzurri defeated Spain in the other semi.
