He has also claimed 10 goals and 47 assists, while at international level, he has 14 England caps.

On Wednesday, Liverpool got their Champions League campaign off to a winning start.

The Reds took the lead against AC Milan, who then scored twice on the stroke of half time, before Jurgen Klopp’s side then scored twice more for a 3-2 win.

“I was a bit excited towards the end of the first half when AC Milan came back,” Schmeichel told told Paramount+ on CBS Sports (15/09/21 at 10:15 pm).

“There was absolutely no need for Milan to be let into this game.

“Liverpool were dominant right from the beginning. The big players, you know, Trent Alexander-Arnold, what a player he is.

“The way he combines with Salah, it’s just beautiful to watch.”
