Irish bookmakers Paddy Power have
offered to pay the 100,000 euro fine handed to
Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner after he revealed their logo
during a goal celebration at Euro 2012.
"We have agreed to pay the barmy 100,000 euro fine that UEFA
dished out to Nicklas Bendtner," the company said via its
Twitter feed on Tuesday.
Bendtner, who lifted his shirt to show the firm's name on
the waistband of his underpants after scoring his second goal in
the 3-2 loss to Portugal, will also be suspended for Denmark's
opening match of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
They start the campaign against Czech Republic on Sept. 8.
Denmark began Euro 2012 with a 1-0 win over Netherlands in
Group B but then lost to Portugal and were eliminated from the
tournament after a 2-1 defeat by Germany on Sunday.
