Even tho I will not face the yellow wall tonite, It will be a good nite. hope the boys will tear it up. Me?Picking up a cutie at the airport
— Nicklas Bendtner (@bendtnerb52) December 17, 2014

Paddy Power Underwear
Bendtner was fined €100,000 for lowering his shorts to show branded ‘Paddy Power’ underwear, referencing the Irish betting compant, after he scored twice in Denmark’s defeat to Portugal at Euro 2012.
