Denmark teammates say Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel deserves to be named Player of the Year.

Schmeichel was announced Denmark's best for 2019 last week, seeing off competition from Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen and Borussia Dortmund defender Thomas Delaney.

"Personally, I think he is one of the best in the world right now," said Delaney.

Eriksen added: "His level has risen quite wildly. He is ranked as one of the best in the world."
