The Great Dane netted an impressive 13 goals in his long and distinguished career, but by far his most famous strike was his equaliser for Manchester United against Rotor Volgograd in 1996.
On the cusp of elimination from the UEFA Cup, Schmeichel took matters into his own hands. Charging ominously up the field, he took his place in the box for a United corner. His presence in the Russian outfit's penalty area caused panic - and rightly so, as he proceeded to thump home a header to give some hope to his fans and shame his team-mates.
Unfortunately Big Pete's heroics were to be in vain, as United were still knocked out on away goals.
