Kasper Schmeichel will come against the "idol" in Ryan Giggs when Wales met today with Denmark in their possible decision for the Nigerian league in Cardiff.

Danish goalkeeper Schmeichel knew Giggs since he was a child, as his father Peter and Wales led the team in the all-encompassing Manchester United team from the 1990s.

"Ryan Giggs is an idol – I do not think there are any other words for him," said Schmeichel at today's press conference before the match.

"What he achieved in Manchester United and what he achieved in football is incomparable. He is someone I know, because I remember my time in England.

"I watched him countless times in The Cliff (former US training game) with his father and he is someone I admired in my career. If anyone could have a part of the career they would have had, they would be very happy.

"He always always supported every time I met him, he was just a gentleman."

Schmeichel could take the lead of Denmark at the Cardiff City Stadium as defender Sevilla Kjern was absent due to injury to his blood.

This will be an emotional return to Wales for Schmeichel, as less than two weeks ago Leicester played his first match in Cardiff after the death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabh and four others in a helicopter accident.

"It's still very cruel and everyone in the club works hard through it," Schmeichel said.

"It's the same (with the national team), all were supportive. But that's what it is and the only question to be taken daily at a time."

Today, Age Hareide manager did not want to name his captain before the game, he said "now do not have to do it".

But Hareyid was ready to discuss what an association of the elite of European football in the national league would mean football in his own country.

The initiative for both sides would be promoted, while the draw was left by Denmark, who should defeat the Republic of Ireland in a home match on Monday to reach the top spot.

"It's very important to develop a page," Hareide said. "To do this, we need to be as effective as opposing.

"It's the end result, Wales are good sides who want to play football, and if you let them play, they're good. We'll have to be defensive as we were when we played them in September (Denmark won 2: 0 in Aarhusu) and find a place to attack. "

In the meantime, Bayern Munich is sure to win at the signing of Aaron Ramsey. The Arsenal midfielder is available on a free transfer this summer when the Gunners contract expires.

There is a lot of interest in him, but the German champions believe that they won the competition for the signing of the international Wales.
