Suarez in another biting storm

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez could once again be in disciplinary trouble after appearing to bite Italy's Giorgio Chiellini in his side's 1-0 World Cup Group D victory which eliminated the Azzurri.

The incident, shown on television replays, showed Suarez apparently biting the shoulder of Chiellini as the pair clashed in the Italian penalty area.

It happened about 60 seconds before Diego Godin headed in Uruguay's 81st-minute winner over 10-man Italy in Natal.

Suarez was sanctioned with a heavy 10-game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in the English Premier League when playing for Liverpool last year.

FIFA can sanction players for biting with bans of up to two years.
