UEFA to probe laser light incident on Schmeichel during England victory over Denmark

UEFA to probe laser light incident on Schmeichel during England victory over Denmark

Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel shone with the laser light while England captain Harry Kane proceeded to award a penalty in overtime. An unknown spectator throws a laser pen into the face of Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel during his team’s semi-final match against England at Euro 2020. The incident happened in overtime, moments before English captain Harry Kane took a penalty.

Although Kane scored in recovery to take advantage before Schmeichel saved the penalty, the goalkeeper was not aware of the attempt to distract. England won the game 2–1 in overtime to qualify for their first World Cup final in 1966.

European football’s governing body has said it has initiated disciplinary proceedings and accused England of using “laser pointers by its supporters”. UEFA has said its disciplinary investigation will also look into the “disturbance” caused by England fans during the national anthem and the lighting of fireworks by its fans.

However, the penalty itself, which was awarded to England, was a controversial decision, which Danish manager Kasper Hjulmund was certainly not satisfied with. Raheem Sterling lost his cool and was able to reduce the score to 2 – 0 when Joakim Maehle overtook the home team’s central defenders just in front of the goal. The England winger finally fell on the field after a blow from Danish player Mathias Jensen.

The ITV broadcaster, which broadcast the match in the UK, showed images of Schmeichel’s face with a green laser. ITV presenter Mark Pougach said, “Whatever he is he’s an idiot… it’s stupid and he doesn’t deserve it.” “No one wants to see this kind of thing.” Following the incident, the English Football Association’s on-site team worked with UEFA to try to find out who used the laser device.

According to the English FA, “The Danish FA representative has confirmed to the UEFA match manager that he does not wish to take the matter further.” The Danish Football Association did not immediately respond to CNN Sport’s request for comment. Disciplinary matters will be dealt with by UEFA’s Control, Ethics, and Discipline Body.
