Natal: Italy centre-back Giorgio Chiellini insisted Uruguay striker Luis Suarez bit him during the World Cup clash between the teams in Natal on Tuesday.

"He bit me, it`s clear, I still have the mark," Chiellini told Italian television station Rai after the match.

"The referee should have blown his whistle and given him a red card, also because he was simulating," added the Juventus player.

Italy crashed out of the World Cup as Uruguay`s 1-0 victory, thanks to Diego Godin`s late goal just after the biting incident, put the South Americans into the last 16 behind surprise Group D winners Costa Rica.
