FIFA charges Suarez for biting Italy's Chiellini, faces multi-match ban

Luiz Suarez has made history as the inaugural winner of the FIFA ‘Golden Tooth’ award. He has been charged by FIFA for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup's Group D match on Tuesday.

FIFA said early Wednesday that its disciplinary committee has opened proceedings against the Uruguay forward. If the panel finds Suarez guilty of assaulting an opponent, FIFA rules call for a ban of at least two matches up to a maximum of 24 months.

Suarez, who has twice been suspended previously for biting, appeared to take a chomp at Italy's Giorgio Chiellini. 

Chiellini pled to the referee while showing his shoulder, and Suarez appeared to be holding his mouth in apparent pain. 

Suarez escaped any immediate punishment.
