As a matter of urgency we must find the idiot fan who shone the laser pen in Schmeichel’s eyes during the penalty. It damages our reputation for fairness.

The game was won and I was still reflecting on the triumph when ITV presenter Mark Pougatch made a stunning revelation. He picked out a piece of footage which showed a green laser pen light pointing at Kasper Schmeichel’s eyes as he faced the penalty from Harry Kane.
It is not clear if Schmeichel noticed the laser pen and he has yet to comment on social media since his team lost.

Pougatch described the fan’s action as “completely unacceptable and ridiculous.”
He went on; “ Whoever they are they’re an idiot and we can just hope that it didn’t put Schmeichel off because its stupid and he doesn’t deserve that. That sort of thing nobody wants to see.”
Quite right. Be grateful if the police at Wembley put out an appeal for somebody to come forward with the name of the fan. Not only is this wrong it could also damage what had previously been good relations between England and Denmark. Yes football is that powerful.
PS If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
