Fifa announced a record punishment for the striker, which include a nine-match international suspension, which keeps him out of football until the end of October, which could have a devastating effect on Liverpool’s plans as it will keep the striker out of football until the end of October - potentially 12 club matches.

The Uruguay forward will play no further part in the World Cup in Brazil after his attack on Chiellini during his side’s final group game on Tuesday, a 1-0 Uruguay win which saw them progress at Italy’s expense.

Suarez and the Uruguay FA are able to appeal - but is the punishment too much, or too little?
