After being found guilty of biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini, Luis Suarez has been banned by FIFA for nine international matches and from all football activity for four months. Per ESPN:
quote:

Uruguay and Liverpool striker Suarez, 27, bit the defender during the latter stages of the 1-0 victory that secured their place in the knockout stages.

FIFA launched an immediate investigation, and an independent disciplinary panel confirmed the punishment on Thursday. It means that, in addition to his World Cup immediately being over, Suarez will miss nine Premier League games as well as Champions League and Capital One Cup matches.
Suarez was also ordered to pay a fine of 100,000 Swiss francs.
