Simon Kjær is with the Danish national team for another round of European qualifiers.
Kasper Hjulmand: "When I told Simon Kjær he wasn't going to play from the start, he went out and delivered the best training I've seen. He has a character and personality that you rarely meet in this world. He is the man of the team and an indescribably skilled leader."
Denmark win 1-0 over Finland. Simon Kjær entered the match in the 80th minute. Another 3 points in the pocket.

At work. Training session with Denmark on 8 September 2023.
Simon Kjær was interviewed by San Marino RTV after the European qualifying match on 7 September 2023. About Denmark. AC Milan. The Derby. And more.
Sweet stuff. Simon Kjær was a much wanted man by the San Marino squad. It was a special experience for them to play against a big star like Simon.
Simon Kjær: "That's the way it is sometimes when they don't face that kind of opposition in their daily lives. After all, they are fans like everyone else. I think half of them are AC Milan fans."
Many people also wanted AC Milan player Kjær's jersey.
Simon Kjær: "Questions were asked quietly during the match. One of them asked on behalf of someone because there had been a death. I didn't know who it was in his family, but that's why he got it."
Simon Kjær is the best looking footballer. Thank you. Grazie. Tak.
Another great match in Parken Stadium for Simon.
Some Danish fans made a flag with the following text:
Når kampen er svær er det godt vi har Simon Kjær.
It means: When the games is hard, it is good that we have Simon Kjær.
If anyone has a picture of this, please send it to me via Instagram.
It's a great tradition.
And another day of hard work and good times with the Danes.
Simon Kjær joined the press conference ahead of the match between Denmark and San Marino. Some journalists were being annoying but Simon spoke up. And he did that well.
Simon Kjær working hard. As usual.
Travelling with the Copenhagen metro is the coolest thing these days. Because Simon Kjær is on it. Thanks MisssLing for sharing.
One of Simon Kjær's biggest fans Marianne watched the open training session: "Simon did so well.
I noticed he went for the ball and threw himself at it and took it. Very cool to watch!" And look at this photo that she took. Thanks a lot for sharing!
