Uruguay’s Luis Suarez will miss the rest of the World Cup, as well as the start of the English Premier League season, after FIFA banned him from all soccer for four months for biting an Italian player.

Suarez was banned for nine official matches, beginning with Uruguay’s round of 16 game against Colombia on Saturday. He’s also prohibited from being in the stadium when Uruguay plays.
