Argentina have no chance unless Messi plays great. If it wasn't for the amazing Zabeleta and Messi they would have lost this game.

I realized you meant overall. Because this game, Argentina definitely has a chance.

And I really mean that - something is obviously wrong, as children will grow out of the biting phase, usually by the time they're five. Maybe he needs some mental evaluations.
To follow is a glimpse of how Suarez will be remembered:

... Could you imagine getting bitten by those teeth?

His wife must tremble in fear every time he goes down...

Without Messi we look so average. It´s scary.

From the knockout round bracket as it stands, I have Colombia and Holland as semi-finalists from the top half.

And if Suarez misses the next match, he'll be a huge Pariah back in Uruguay.

Would it have been any better if Suarez had purposely and wilfully nail-scratched Chiellini? Will this be Suarez' forthcoming tactic? Suarez, the biter; the scratcher?

Global sporting events, such as The World Cup, are moments in which a country's best athletes showcase their talents, thus elevating and promoting the sport which others - especially children - will someday emulate.

Dishonourable moments like this might possibly tarnish a sport and a team's repport. But it will most definitely degenerate the guilty athlete's lustre, career, and legacy.

Hopefully Suarez will have his day before FIFA's court. Hopefully he will be found guilty, fined, and banned for the remainder of World Cup 2014. Maybe then he will redeem himself from this shameful incident.
I would agree if they guy was a crap player but I see it the way an South American would probably view it; as a terrible moment in an otherwise supremely talented player. He took down England, man! I think a total ban is too much. Fine him and he misses two games. I mean I don't even think Uruguay would even last that long.
