Kasper Schmeichel performing 'The Danish Catch' goalkeeping technique is blowing people's minds

Kasper Schmeichel performing 'The Danish Catch' goalkeeping technique is blowing people's minds

Kasper Schmeichel stunned fans with his goalkeeping technique.

A viral video of Kasper Schmeichel performing 'The Danish Catch' at Euro 2024 has blown people's minds.

Schmeichel has started all three of Denmark's games at the Euros as he kept a clean sheet against Serbia in their last outing, securing a spot in the next round of the tournament in the process.

The Danes registered three points and finished in second place in Group C, behind England.

And Schmeichel is set to retain his place in goal for when his national team resume their campaign on Saturday.

He's garnered plaudits for his performances between the sticks and caught everyone's attention with his pre-match training drills.

A clip shows the 37-year-old going through his paces as he caught the ball with a rather unusual yet effective style.

The former Leicester City star, who won the Premier League title in the 2015/16 season, can be seen catching the ball using 'The Danish Catch', where he curls his arms towards his chin, tucking his elbows in before allowing the ball to hit his chest in one ultra-smooth motion.


Fans on social media couldn't get enough of Schmeichel executing 'The Danish Catch' with absolute ease.

One X user wrote: "I’ve watched this so many times and still don’t understand how."

A second tweeted: "Goalkeepers catching a ball is unusual in itself these days."

A third added: "Kasper Schmeichel performing 'The Danish Catch' at the Euros. It’s blown my mind tbh."

A fourth said: "How’s this even real."

Another commented: "How about that for technique."

Schmeichel, who enjoyed last season at Anderlecht, will return to action with Denmark for their last-16 game against Germany.
