Uruguay's Luis Suarez Appears to BITE Italy Defender

Uruguay beat Italy, 1-0, on Tuesday, advancing to the knockout stage.

But star striker Luis Suarez's World Cup could be over.

Suarez, maybe the best player in Europe last season, appeared to bite Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in the 80th minute -- one minute before Uruguay defender Diego Godin headed in the match-winner.

And there is a still photo of Giorgio Chiellini showing his shoulder to the officials (and everyone else) in attempt to convince of Suarez's bite.

Unfortunately, this isn't the first biting incident for Luis Suarez -- it's his third. He was suspended for seven matches in 2010 for biting PSV's Otman Bakkal on the shoulder, and was banned for 10 matches in 2013 for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic.

Suarez was not disciplined during the match on Tuesday, but a suspension could still be coming.
