Luis Suárez involved in yet another biting controversy | inside World Soccer

Uruguay forward Luis Suárez has once again found himself at the centre of controversy after appearing to bite Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during Tuesday's World Cup clash.


With the Italians down to 10 men following Claudio Marchisio's 60th-minute sending off, Suárez got involved in a completely unnecessary and stupid confrontation with Chiellini in the Azzurri box.

The Liverpool striker buried his face into Chiellini's back and the Italian instantly tried to shake him off as they both went to ground.

Chiellini then stood up and pulled back his shirt to reveal a visible bite mark on his shoulder, with Suárez holding his teeth in pain.

Suárez was not punished for the bizarre incident, and moments later, Diego Godín sealed a 1-0 win for Uruguay to ensure the South American nation qualified for the knockout stages.

"Suárez is a sneak and he gets away with it because FIFA want their stars to play in the World Cup," Chiellini told Sky Sport Italia.

"I'd love to see if they have the courage to use video evidence against him.

"The referee saw the bite mark too, but he did nothing about it."

This is incredibly the third time in his career that the 27-year-old has been caught on camera biting an opponent.

The first came in 2010 when he bit PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal while playing for Ajax Amsterdam in 2010.

The second came when he bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanović in a Premier League match last year.

"These situations happen on the field," Suárez told Uruguay's Channel 10.

"I had contact with his shoulder, nothing more, things like that happen all the time."
