Emulating his old man's exploits against once upon a time, Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel popped up in the box to score a late, 90th-minute equaliser for the Foxes against Yeovil last night.

The goal was actually credited to striker Chris Wood, who nodded in the rebound but, as can clearly be seen in the following snippet, Schmeichel's cavaliering header crossed the line in its own right.
