Bendtner and DBU lose appeal against suspension

Nicklas Bendtner must serve a one-match ban after the player and the Danish Football Association lost their appeal against the suspension imposed for improper conduct in June.

Nicklas Bendtner and the Danish Football Association (DBU) have lost their appeal against the suspension imposed on the player for improper conduct during the UEFA EURO 2012 match against Portugal in June.

The UEFA Appeals Body rejected the appeal against the one-match ban which was handed down to Bendtner on 18 June, and instead upheld the original decision of the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body both to suspend the forward and to fine him €100,000.

The two sanctions related to Bendtner's improper conduct during the UEFA EURO 2012 Group B game against Portugal in Lviv on 13 June. His suspension will apply to the next 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying fixture for which he will be eligible to play.

Bendtner had already paid the €100,000 fine before today's Appeals Body hearing.
