    Luis Suarez: Uruguay striker in World Cup bite controversy

    Suarez pushed his head towards Chiellini in the penalty area just before Diego Godin's Uruguay winner.

    REad the rest on BBC


    But WTF!?!?>! He must surely be banned for 15 games now. This is his 3rd chomp! And he did do it from the video

    He's got issues, clearly. I can't see how you can defend that sort of behaviour. I understand that it's not a leg breaker, but it's an act of violence nonetheless. You can sort of forgive a stupid, mis-timed late tackle that results in a leg break but that's an act of aggression that, even if done with next to no thinking involved, still has malicious intent. It's unsporting and disrespectful.

    I get the diving in football, and the play acting. Don't agree with it, but it's all done to gain an advantage. Things like spitting, elbowing, Zidane-ing and biting cross the line. Not just physical abuse, but verbal abuse too. I'm sure what Materazzi had said to Zinedine crossed the line as well. As I said, totally disrespectful. I'd have a hard time keeping my cool after the game if I were Chiellini/Ivanovic/Bakkal.

    He'll miss the rest of the WC, surely? If he doesn't, it's a joke but I'm sure he will.

    I wonder what Liverpool think of this. Will they really stand by him again, or will they finally realize what a nutter he is.

    That's the reason I don't like yellow in the Spurs home kit! That's been bugging me for a while, cheers!

    Should be banned for life, no place in the game for this. He should be banned for his acting after the bite anyway.

    FIFA has announced it will investigate the latest allegations of biting against Luis Suarez with Liverpool's Uruguay striker likely to face a lengthy ban if found guilty.

    Suarez appeared bite Italy's Giorgio Chiellini towards the end of Uruguay's 1-0 win, leaving teeth-marks on the defender's shoulder.

    A FIFA spokesperson said: "We are awaiting the official match reports and will gather all the necessary elements in order to evaluate the matter."

    FIFA's disciplinary code sets a maximum ban of 24 matches or two years, but the longest ban in World Cup history was eight games for Italy's Mauro Tassotti for breaking Spain's Luis Enrique's nose in 1994 with an elbow.

    Suarez has twice been banned for biting opponents - for 10 matches in 2013 for his clash with Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic and in 2010 he was given a seven-game ban while playing for Ajax for sinking his teeth into PSV Eindhoven's Otman Bakkal.

    FIFA's disciplinary code allows action to be taken retrospectively via video evidence even if the incident has been seen by the referee.

    Chiellini tried to show referee Marco Rodriguez the mark but no action was taken, and he believes the authorities must now look back at what happened and punish Suarez.

    He told Sky Italia: “Suarez has bitten me and the referee saw it, but then there is the need to have the courage to take decisions.

    “We will see if there is the courage to utilise the TV images to ban him.”

    Uruguay manager Oscar Tabarez insisted he had not seen the incident but claimed that Luis Suarez "is the target of certain sections of the press".

    "I would like to see it first," said Tabarez. "If it happened then I think the referee had to have seen it first. I didn't see the incident and I don't want anyone to speak for me about it.

    "Suarez, in addition to errors that he may have made, is a target for certain sections of the media."

    Tabarez faced repeated questions about Suarez's bite, but refused to criticise his star man.

    "If we believe people are attacking him, as has happened in this press conference, then we're going to defend him," he said.

    "He's a vital player, a very important person to the group."

    Jim Boyce, FIFA’s vice president, told Sky Sports News that the incident must be investigated by world football’s ruling body.

    “I have watched the incident several times on television,” said Boyce.

    “There is no doubt Luis Suarez is a fantastic footballer but once again his actions have left him open to severe criticism.

    “There is no doubt that FIFA must investigate this incident very seriously and take whatever action is deemed necessary.”

    Italy boss Cesare Prandelli - who went on to resign - confirmed he had seen the bite marks.

    He said: "I didn't see Suarez biting him but I saw the bite-marks on his shoulder but the referee's assistants were so busy they didn't see anything.

    "It's a shame, it's a real shame that it turned out like this."
