NATAL, Brazil — Uruguay skipper Diego Godín scored to send Italy crashing out of the World Cup on Tuesday amid a new biting controversy for South American star striker Luis Suárez.

Uruguay beat Italy 1-0 in the tense match in which the Europeans ended with 10-men and exited at the group stage for the second consecutive World Cup.

But amid the celebrations, immediate attention fell on a clash between Suárez and Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini who showed teeth marks in his shoulder after.

Television replays showed Suárez — who has twice been sanctioned for biting players — appearing to attempt to sink his teeth into Chiellini’s shoulder in an off-the-ball incident.

Italy won the 2006 World Cup, then failed to reach the last 16 in South Africa four years ago. They required only a draw against Uruguay at Estadio das Dunas in Natal to go through this time.

However, the Azzurri suffered a critical blow early in the second half when Claudio Marchisio received a red card for a rough tackle.

Shortly after the Suárez-Chiellini incident, Godín rose in a crowded box and the ball rebounded off his shoulder to beat Buffon in the 81st minute.

Uruguay’s win means they leapfrog Italy to join Costa Rica in the last 16 of the tournament.
