Underwear ‘under investigation’

26 Jun, 2014

FIFA_Neymar_underwearBrazil striker Neymar Jr. is reported to be under investigation by FIFA for revealing a pair of Brazilian flag boxer shorts during the group game with Cameroon. A local website reports that the Blue Man-brand underwear are being investigated for violating FIFA’s disciplinary code, which prohibits players from displaying political and religious messages as well as publicity slogans and non-sanctioned brands. Neymar has been under scrutiny for displaying underwear in league matches with FC Barcelona while Danish player Nicklas Bendtner has been fined around $125,000 for displaying underwear, higher than fines imposed for racism-related incidents in Spain, Serbia and Croatia.
