Uruguay football hero Luis Suárez is not only a genius but also a serial human biter, it seems. The bad boy has appeared to bite Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini in the latest Uruguay-Italy match. Amusingly, despite sinking his jaws into the shoulder of Chiellini, he walked away free – no yellow or red card for him. Minutes later, Uruguay defender Diego Godin finished a header into the back of the net to give the team a 1-0 (winning) lead over Italy.
Yes, Mario Balotelli and his Italian team are joining England as surprises over what is happening to the declining quality from European teams. Italy was playing with 10-players when Claudio Marchisio was given a red card by referee Marco Rodoriguez during the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Group D match.
FIFA announced it will investigate, pending an official match reports. In what appears to be Suárez’s favourite bad-habit in a live footage, he was seen leaning his head towards his opponent’s shoulder. Thereafter, both players fell to the ground with Suárez clutching his infamous teeth while Chiellini gesticulated furiously and pulled down his shirt to show the (love) bite mark supposedly from Suárez.
If he is found guilty later, Suárez could be banned by world football’s governing body for up to 24 matches or two years. But the fact that the referee didn’t (or rather pretended not to) see the “cannibalism” incident could work in Suárez’s favour. The ball is now at FIFA’s court – whether to decide solely on video footage or referee’s decision.
Did Suárez’s stunt somehow sent shivers down the Italian’s spine, so much so that Italy lost the game? Well, if it did, then Luis Suárez’s “Teeth of Terror” can rivals Argentine Diego Maradona’s “Hand of God” (1986) and Zinedine Zidane’s “head-butt” (2006), And guess what – Uruguay could emerge as the 2014 FIFA World Cup Champion, joining Germany as the second team to win the world cup for 3-times, if Suárez is still allowed to play.
But seriously, what was Suárez thinking? Why did he acts like a 3-year-old kid who didn’t get his ice-cream? Did he not take his breakfast? Was it merely a hobby of him sneaking and sniffing before biting people? Did he mistakenly thought he was playing for Hungary? Interestingly, this is not the first time he has bitten his opponent – 14 months ago Suárez spent 10 matches on the benches and apologised for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in a 2-2 draw in a Liverpool-Chelsea match.
In 2010, he was given a 7-game ban while playing for Ajax for biting PSV Eindhoven’s Otman Bakkal. Besides biting his opponents, Suárez also punched a Chile defender in the head during a World Cup qualifier in 2013, but (again) the referee didn’t see it. Come to think of it, England team must be jumping mad because Suárez didn’t bite their players earlier.
Imagine if Luis Suárez had bitten Rooney and subsequently the British team lost 2-1 to Uruguay. England can then put the blame squarely on Suárez, the Werewolf of Uruguay. Nobody would blame and question England’s pathetic and horrible game. Everybody’s attention would be diverted and voila, England Roy Hodgson’s job is secured. Nevertheless, Luis Suárez should have no problem getting an award for this World Cup, if not Golden Boot then he should get FIFA Golden Teeth Award.
