German World Cup Pundit Forced To Apologise After Referring To Qatari Attire As 'Bathrobes'

World Cup pundit and former Germany forward Sandro Wagner has been forced to apologise after referring to Qatari traditional dress as 'bathrobes'.

Wagner was commenting for German broadcasters ZDF in his country's 1-1 draw with Spain on Sunday when he made the disparaging remark about the traditional thaub dress.

Towards the end of the game at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, the 35-year-old said he had thought one end of the ground was filled with German fans wearing the country's famous white shirt.
