    Nicklas Bendtner has been fined 100,000 pounds and suspended for one World Cup qualifier after being found guilty of improper conduct for displaying sponsored underwear during Denmark's game against Portugal. Bendtner claims he was unaware of UEFA's rules against unapproved sponsor advertising on kits, saying "It is just a pair of lucky boxer shorts that I used in the first game as well and have used before the tournament. I didn't know I was breaking any rules but I am aware of that now."
