Sequence of events: Footage of the clash (above) appeared to show Uruguay's Luis Suárez leaning in to bite the shoulder of Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini during a crucial World Cup clash in Natal, Brazil#BRAZIL2014WORLDCUP - LUIS SUAREZ CHARGED BY FIFA FOR BITING AN ITALIAN OPPONENT & DEFENDER, GIORGIO CHIELLINI; FACES 2-YEAR BAN

Uruguay Striker, Luis Suárez  was charged  today for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini during the match on Tuesday, June 24 which could see him banned from football for up to two years if found guilty.  The Uruguayan forward is accused of sinking his jaws into the shoulder of Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini in Brazil, just 14 months after he had to apologise for doing the same thing in Britain.  According to FIFA.com:

FIFA can confirm that disciplinary proceedings have been opened against the player Luis Suarez of Uruguay following an apparent breach of art. 48 and/or art. 57 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code during the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ match Italy-Uruguay played on 24 June 2014. The player and/or the Uruguayan FA are invited to provide with their position and any documentary evidence they deem relevant until 25 June 2014, 5pm, Brasilia time.

Suarez was banned seven matches by the Dutch FA the first time he bit an opponent in 2010. Then in 2013, he was banned 10 matches by the English FA for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic. Now he must answer to a higher power in FIFA and for a third unthinkable offense (fourth if his eight-match ban for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra in 2011 is considered, and it should be), it's only logical that his next ban should be longer than his last. But FIFA rarely operates within the confines of logic.  

Chai, Chai for the love of football......
