Video: FIFA to investigate Luis Suarez punch on defender

Published 27/03/2013 | 10:14

Luis Suarez once again hit the headlines for the wrong reasons as Chile put themselves back on track for a World Cup berth with a 2-0 home win over Uruguay.

Esteban Paredes and Eduardo Vargas gave Jorge Sampaoli's Chile the win to recover from a 1-0 defeat against Peru last week and climb up to fourth in the standings - the last automatic qualifying spot for next year's tournament.

Suarez, meanwhile, was lucky to stay on the pitch as he appeared to hit out at the face of Chile defender Gonzalo Jara in the first half.

The defender was grappling with Suarez when the Liverpool hitman appeared to swing a closed fist into Jara’s face.

The referee took no action over that incident, but did book the Liverpool striker for protesting later in the game and he will miss the next qualifying duel against Venezuela as a result.

FIFA have indicated that they will be looking into the altercation between Suarez and Jara.

"We are still collecting all the post-match reports, since the officials have got 24 hours to send them," Fifa said.

"Based on the mentioned reports, FIFA will proceed accordingly."
