Luis Suarez Bites Giorgio Chiellini Uruguay All-Star striker Luis Suárez took a huge bite out of opposing defender Giorgio Chiellini this afternoon during the World Cup soccer match with Italy ... and it went UNNOTICED by refs!

The two teams were 80 minutes into the game when Suárez leaned into Chiellini and appeared to chomp down HARD ... both men then tumbled to the ground.

Luis Suarez Bites Giorgio ChielliniThis is the 3rd time Suárez has been accused of using his pearly whites during a game. He was suspended for five games for biting at the beginning of the season.

No cards were issued for the bite. 

Notorious bite-receiver Evander Holyfield was apparently watching the match, writing on Twitter, "I guess any part of the body is up for eating."

Wow there's a lot of dirty players in this woldcup for example I was watching the Japan Colombia game and the Colombian players were brutal. It was one dirty play after another. These players should be banned from the sport.

First of all, No one knows exactly what these guys are saying or doing to eachother on the field. Maybe he was provoked? Its no excuse, BUT here in United States we are really stupid to try to have such a big opinion about Futbol!!!!!! After all, we are human being's, we all make mistakes. We cannot understand Uruguay's passion for there only beloved sport. They are a very small country that worked very hard to get to where they are. Uruguay is one of the best countries to play Futbol of all time. Just look it up.

If people watched the WHOLE game, Italy had 95 minutes to score 2 goals to beat Uruguay. Uruguay made a goal that had nothing to do with Suarez bite. Suarez may be a dirty player , but we cannot begin to understand what these guys are going through. They grab their opponents balls just so they can screw up there plays. We have to acknowledge that there are things that happen on the field that we don't see or hear. Every country is going to have a dirty player. We do not need to call someone a PIG, especially when you don't know them or their country

Soccer players try to convince refs that they are hurt
Hockey players try to convince refs that they can keep playing
That's the difference buddy. I'm sorry that it upsets you so badly

He didn't bite him at all. the photo of the bite is actually a photoshop. the italian team came out with a photo of their player shoulder and there is no bite mark what so ever.
