But head coach Age Hareide has his goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to thank for pulling off a string of world-class saves to keep his side in the match over the course of the 90 minutes.

Deep into injury time, the Leicester City man managed to stop a calamitous own goal by stretching to reach Thomas Delaney’s header, but two of the most stunning saves came in either half as the Dane tipped two efforts onto the crossbar.

Others described the 32-year-old’s display as “top class,” “immense” and “outstanding”.

Here’s the best of the reaction:
