Kasper Schmeichel has hailed Leicester City’s “unbelievable achievement” in reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

“It is an unbelievable achievement for the club. I am proud of the boys and proud of everybody. We had a game plan, we stuck to it and it came off perfectly,” Schmeichel told BBC Sport.

“We always knew they would have a lot of possession. First half they had a lot of possession and played really well but you know you have to defend against a team that keeps the ball like them and we kept them to just a couple of chances.”

“It is a great feeling to help the team progress. It is about confidence. We have gone out and played more like we did last season and we are reaping the rewards of it now. It was a fantastic night.”
