Leicester City star Schmeichel had the light shone on his face just seconds before Harry Kane took a penalty in extra-time.
He managed to save the penalty before Kane tapped in the rebound to give England a 2-1 lead.
The 34-year-old has since revealed: "I did not experience it on the penalty kick because it was behind me on my right side. But I did experience it in the second half.

"I told the referee. And he went to say something to one of the other officials."
It was confirmed on Thursday that England are set to be charged for the unsavoury incident and it's a blot on an otherwise incredible summer.
The Three Lions are also charged with causing a 'disturbance' during Denmark's national anthem and setting off fireworks.
A statement reads: "The case will be dealt with by the Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) in due course."
The Metropolitan police said on Thursday evening that the incident was still being dealt with by UEFA and was not yet a police matter.
It comes as a former Home Office minister said she understood police were looking into it, describing the incident as 'appalling'.
Speaking in the House of Lords, Baroness Williams of Trafford told peers: "Lord Thomas of Gresford mentioned about the incident with the laser pen.
"It was an appalling incident and I have already asked about this. I understand the police are investigating it."
Denmark took the lead on Wednesday evening through Mikkel Damsgaard's rocket of a free-kick.
The 21-year-old scored the first direct free-kick of the tournament and it was also the first goal Jordan Pickford has conceded this summer.
England got back into the game through a Simon Kjaer own goal, with Raheem Sterling putting him under great pressure.
Kane then scored in extra-time to see England reach their first major tournament final since 1966.
They will now face Roberto Mancini's Italy side at Wembley on Sunday evening.
