The Sampdoria scored in their victory over Russia as Denmark booked their place in the Euro 2020 round of 16.
Schmeichel said, "There is no one to replace Christian Eriksen, but Mikkel .. Shut up, what a player. We have seen it in training, and the fact that he produces what he produces in the matches, it is fantastic.
"I told Mikkel Damsgaard that I had the feeling that he would score. He was so close to Belgium and played such a fantastic match, so I thought it was the perfect time for him to get his goal. Yes, he was phenomenal today."
