Kasper Schmeichel's Daring Act After Leicester Helicopter Crash Deserves Accolades

Getty Images

A second-half goal from Demarai Gray sparked jubilation amongst Leicester's players and fans, although referee Lee Probert faced huge criticism for booking the forward after he took his shirt off in celebration to reveal a T-shirt with the words "For Khun Vichai" across the front. I haven't really known a feeling like it on the pitch.

In delivering a 1-0 win away at Cardiff City, the team had the prefect tribute for the beloved Thai billionaire, who brought the club its first-ever top-flight league championship in its 134-year history. After [the crash] I saw Kasper, I think he was the only player still here after the game.

"My wife is Thai and she tells me that everything that we experienced about him was true exactly as he did in Bangkok".

"There are a lot of exhausted people in there now but I am proud of this team and the club, the way everyone has handled themselves has been unbelievable".

The Leicester City footballers travelled to Bangkok after Saturday's game to attend Vichai's funeral.

"We have all lost a family member".

The game's decisive moment came after 55 minutes when Gray turned home from 10 yards after a fine cross from Ben Chilwell, sparking an outpouring of emotion from the Foxes' players and travelling support after a tragic week.

Cardiff pushed hard in the closing stages, but Leicester - who might have added a second when Vardy was smartly thwarted by Etheridge - held firm to claim maximum points after a challenging and emotional week.

Ian Rush believes Manchester City's desire to win the Champions League could hand his former club, Liverpool, an golden opportunity to win the English league title for the first time since 1990. I am really glad to have won... The balance was good in our speed and intensity.

Though the draw moved unbeaten Liverpool top of the table, they were left to rue dropped points.

Leicester's captain Wes Morgan also spoke about how much his side wanted to win the game for Srivaddhanaprabha.

The nervy first-half version at Bournemouth or the more assured team that completed a 2-1 win after the break?

Puel's men are back in action next Saturday, with Leicester hosting Burnley in the Premier League.

Leicester manager Claude Puel said, "It was a normal thing for us to have the players and staff for the minute's silence, it is important for solidarity and we want to give our best for our chairman, step by step, to continue his work".

Goals from Erik Lamela and Harry Kane put Spurs 3-0 up before penalties from Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez gave the Wolves hope.

There was a tense finish as Wolves' Ruben Neves scored a 68th minute penalty before team-mate Raul Jimenez netted with another spot-kick in the 79th minute.
