Suarez banned for 9 games and 4 months for biting

FIFA came down hard on Uuguay's Luis Suarez after the evidence showed that he did actually bite the Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini. Suarez was banned for 9 games and is also banned for 4 months from all football activities. This means Uruguay lost their best player for the rest of this tournament.

Suarez was already banned for 10 matches for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in 2013.
