Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner faces a disciplinary hearing after showing an unofficial sponsor’s name on his underwear during a goal celebration at Euro 2012.
European soccer governing body UEFA said on its website that Bendtner broke Law 4 of the soccer regulations regarding uniforms. UEFA will hear the case on June 18.
Bendtner lifted his shirt and lower his shorts a bit to show the name of a gambling company on the top of his underwear after scoring his second goal in Denmark’s 3-2 loss to Portugal two days ago. Sponsor advertising is not allowed on player uniforms.
Denmark plays Germany in its final group match in Lviv, Ukraine, in two days.
