After scoring the opening goal, Bendtner pulled his shirt up and his shorts down to expose a pair of boxers with a betting firm’s name emblazoned on them.

The Uefa control and disciplinary body has decided to ban the Arsenal striker who spent most of last season on loan at Sunderland, for a game, which includes the qualifiers for the 2014 word cup.

“It’s just a pair of lucky boxer shorts that I used in the first game as well and have used before the tournament,” Bendtner said.

“I didn’t know I was breaking any rules but I am aware of that now.”
