Simon Kjær player picture

Today the official player pictures were taken. Here's the one with Simon Kjær. It's beautiful.

Simon Kjær: "It's probably my last World Cup"

Simon Kjær: "It's probably my last World Cup. But again, I'm going to play as long as I can. I'm going to live my life and optimize everything I can. On and off the pitch. Until one day I have to put the boots on the shelf."

"But it's not because I have plans to do it for the time being."

"Before I was injured, yes. There I thought that it could fit very well with me being able to make it to the WC. But I've also just been injured and put things into perspective a bit. I'll take the fights that come. I know that Peter Schmeichel is not far away, but I also know how little it takes before you are out as long as I have."

"If I reach it, I'm happy and proud, then we can talk about it at that time, but right now I'm taking it in the somewhat boring football language one match at a time after the last 11.5 months."

"I know I'm singing on the last verse, but it also has to be a good last verse."

Simon Kjær's second training session in Qatar

Today was the second training session of Simon Kjær with Denmark in Qatar. The Danish national team Herrelandsholdet: "There is full focus on the match against Tunisia in five days, but there is still room for smiles on the training ground."

Simon Kjær armband issues

Simon Kjær wants to play with the One Love armband, but this has not yet been approved.

Simon Kjær: "It is still a good question, which captain's armband I should wear. We still haven't received an answer from Fifa, so no decision has been made."

"This is the way we were brought up. We will have to see at that time whether we choose to play with it or not. But first of all we have asked for permission to do so."
