BBC commentator Steve Wilson has apologised after he mistook Germany's national anthem for a Nazi version ahead of their World Cup semi-final clash with Brazil.

Fourteen million viewers tuned in for the Germans' 7-1 evisceration of the hosts, however Wilson got things off to a bad start when he erroneously said the Nationalmannschaft would be singing "Deutschland über alles" - not part of the country's national anthem since the end of the second world war.
BBC Sport, the German national anthem is NOT Deutschland Uber Alles. And that's actually incredibly insulting, to them and many others.— Zaph Camden (@dotZaph) July 8, 2014
BBC commentator still not corrected HUGE 'Deutschland Uber Alles' gaffe. No Heil Hitler during the anthem either, mate.#Brazilgermany— Mark Jones (@markmywordsltd) July 8, 2014
If I upset anyone with my mistake on the German anthem, of course I apologise.— Steve Wilson (@SteveWilson1967) July 8, 2014
