Luis Suarez faces TWO-YEAR ban after being charged by FIFA with BITING an Italian defender
Luis Suárez was playing for Uruguay in the closing minutes of the group stage clash when footage appeared to show him biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini.
Live footage of the match in Natal's Arena das Dunas showed the controversial forward's mouth colliding with Chiellini's shoulder before an outraged Chiellini hit the floor and clutched his shoulder (centre) - with Suarez clutching his teeth (right). Chiellini then showed what appeared to be a bite mark (left). Just 14 months ago Suárez apologised for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in a Premier League match.
