We’ve shown you guys some infamous World Cup moments, and we may have just witnessed another in the final Group D game between Italy and Uruguay. The Italians were eliminated from the tournament after losing the game 1-0, but Uruguayan talisman Luis Suarez could be in trouble for what appears to be another biting incident.
The Liverpool player has bitten opponents in the past, once while he was playing in Holland and another while in the Premier League in April 2013, and this Vine does not make for good viewing if you support Le Celeste. Here is what looks like another moment of madness as Suarez seems to take a bite out of Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini’s shoulder:
The player was not penalized during the game, so it will be up to FIFA whether they take action based on the video evidence. Check out this tweet of a photo of the Italian showing the scars of battle:
