A furious Giorgio Chiellini said he had been bitten by Suarez during the South Americans' 1-0 Group D victory at the World Cup Tuesday, and Reuters photographs showed what appeared to be bite marks on his shoulder.Suarez and Chiellini clashed in the Italian penalty area 10 minutes from the end of the match that sealed Uruguay's progression and Italy's elimination from the tournament.Suarez contested the Italian's version of events, however.Liverpool's Suarez was banned for 10 games last year after biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in a Premier League match and in 2010 he was suspended for seven games for a similar offence against PSV Eindhoven's Otman Bakkal while playing for Ajax Amsterdam.FIFA's disciplinary code sets a maximum ban of 24 matches or two years, but the longest suspension FIFA has imposed for an offence at a World Cup was eight games for Italy's Mauro Tassotti for breaking Spain's Luis Enrique's nose in 1994 with an elbow.Opinion in Uruguay, a country of around 3 million people sandwiched between soccer powerhouses Argentina and Brazil, was divided over Suarez's latest antics.
