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."

I'm not saying its right or wrong. I'm saying people just look for something to talk about and they love little pity **** like that. Uruguay played a hell of a game and got a hell of a result (2 actually) knocking down TWO major teams... yet they only manage to talk about Suarez Suarez Suarez... He didn't score the goal and that play did not change the outcome of the game. What he does and did isn't right but who gives a ****? the game keeps going and we got the win... this isn't football where you can replay every play on the spot. It happened, game continued, we scored, we won, bye italy. onto the next one!

This is about the 3 or 4th incident where he has bitten someone. He was always responsible for this cheating handball move against Ghana in the 2010 world cup. He was also implicated in a racial abuse scandal some years back, but claimed he wasn't racist because his grandfather was black.

He's a dirty player.

You all need to stop posting a link to "the real photo".

I trust Reuters more than some troll with an airbrushed picture on Twitter.
