Uruguay appeals Suarez ban

10:13 am on 4 July 2014

Uruguay have lodged an appeal against the four-month football ban imposed on their star striker Luis Suarez for his World Cup bite.

Suarez was banned from all football activity for four months, suspended for nine internationals and fined 100,000 Swiss francs for his third offence of biting an opposition player, in this case the Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.

He has since made a public apology to Chiellini while the Spanish giants Barcelona are negotiating to buy the prolific striker from Liverpool.
