Photo:Luis Suarez 'Bites' Italy Defender, Giorgio Chiellini during World Cup Match

Liverpool striker, Uruguay's Luis Suarez has caused another storm, after apparently biting an opponent for the THIRD time in under four years, in a controversial World Cup incident.

During Uruguay's must-win World Cup match against Italy, Suarez was involved in a clash with Italy's Giorgio Chiellini, and apparently took a bite of the Azzurri defender's shoulder. Television replays showed him apparently biting Giorgio Chiellini's shoulder and it happened about a
minute before Uruguay's Diego Godín scored in the 81st, lifting Uruguay past Italy, 1-0. 

Immediately after the clash,  Chiellini pulled his shirt down to protest the bite, showing the referee the alleged bite mark on his shoulder but no action was taken by the official. Instead, Suarez, 27, went to ground holding his mouth, apparently suggesting he had been elbowed.

Suarez now faces another possible ban - 24 matches or two years after serving two previous suspensions in his career for biting opponents.
