FIFA have confirmed that they have opened disciplinary proceedings against Uruguay striker Luis Suarez following his alleged bite on Italy's Giorgio Chiellini.

Suarez appeared to sink his teeth into the defender on Tuesday during Uruguay's 1-0 win in Natal.

After revealing that it would be investigating the incident shortly after the match, football's world governing body has now charged the 27-year-old.

"FIFA can confirm that disciplinary proceedings have been opened against the player Luis Suarez of Uruguay following an apparent breach of art. 48 and/or art. 57 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code during the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil match Italy-Uruguay played on June 24, 2014," read an official statement.

The Uruguayan Football Association has until 9pm on Wednesday to respond to the charge.
