Suarez suspended

26 Jun, 2014

FIFA bans Luis Suarez  for nine international matches and suspends him from any football activity for four months as a result of the biting incident that took place in the World Cup playoff game against Italy.  This is the most severe punishment that has ever been imposed at a World Cup. Additionally,  Suarez is not allowed to enter any stadiums and has been fined 100,000 Swiss Francs  ($111,000).  Suarez has the right to appeal the decision.
