He was nominated for the Balon D'or for leading Denmark to the Semifinals of Euro 2020. Remember, Denmark were poised to leave the competition in the group stages until they won there last game. Hence, they qualified for the Round of 16 as best losers. They persevered until they reached the Semifinals where they were knocked out by England. But Simon Kjaer was a standing force in the defence for his team. He deserves to be on the Balon D'or list.
