Schmeichel handed Denmark Euro call-up

Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has been awarded a late call-up to the Denmark national squad which travels to Poland and Ukraine for Euro 2012 next month.

The 25-year-old will replace injured Thomas Sorensen in Morten Olsen's 23-man touring party and the Danish coach insists he has no fears in handing the uncapped Foxes' keeper a place in his squad.

"He has worked seriously on his development as a goalkeeper," said Olsen, "We followed him closely during the season for Leicester."
