On the world’s biggest stage with his team facing elimination, Uruguay’s Luis Suarez bit an opponent at the World Cup. Suarez, who earned a 10-match ban in 2013 for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic, bit Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini late into Uruguay’s final group game. Suarez also earned a seven-match ban in 2010 for biting a player in the Eredivisie.

No card was shown to Suarez by the referee, and Chiellini was furious. He pulled down his jersey to show the marks on his shoulder.

A closer look at Chiellini’s shoulder reveals the damage.

Suarez, meanwhile, grabbed his teeth in pain.

Italy only needed a draw to advance, but Claudio Marchisio’s mindless red card for stomping on Egidio Rios forced Italy to play a man down for the final half-hour of the game. The 2006 World Cup champions staved off Uruguay, and Suarez should have been given a straight red card for his bite to even out the game.

Minutes after the biting incident, Diego Godin won the game for Uruguay. Godin deflected in a Gaston Ramirez cross off the back of his shoulder, sealing a spot in the knockout rounds.

This isn’t the first time Suarez has been at the center of controversy at the World Cup. Four years ago, he committed a handball on the goal line to keep Ghana from scoring. He was given a red card, but Uruguay won the game to go to the semifinals.

Suarez certainly faces a ban from FIFA, which will investigate the incident.
