FIFA Charges Suarez for Biting Italy’s Chiellini

Less than 24 hours from the biting incident, Luis Suarez was charged by FIFA. Reports will be submitted to FIFA by 5pm, with the sentence coming quickly.

Suárez denied biting him, saying “I had contact with his shoulder, nothing more”.

Chiellini said, “Suárez is a sneak, and he gets away with it because FIFA wants their stars to play in the World Cup.”

FIFA has charged Luis Suarez for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup’s Group D match on Tuesday.

FIFA said early Wednesday that its disciplinary committee has opened proceedings against the Uruguay forward. If the panel finds Suarez guilty of assaulting an opponent, FIFA rules call for a ban of at least two matches up to a maximum of 24 months.

FIFA asked the team to present evidence by 5 p.m. Wednesday. A decision must be published before Saturday, when Uruguay plays Colombia in a round-of-16 match.
