In 2001 for Aston Villa the big Danish goalkeeper scored a goal that any centre forward would be proud of- a beautiful first-time volley at the back post against Everton.

He had already scored for Manchester United where he had his best years but never in the Premier League.

Unfortunately this great strike couldn't prevent a 3-2 defeat. Poor Schmeichel couldn't even celebrate his effort....not in front of the manager anyway.
