Video: Watch bizarre moment Suarez called for a penalty kick as the ball struck the arm of Chilean goalkeeper

Luis Suarez is living up to the reputation of a fierce competitor. The FC Barcelona striker put up a dramatic stunt in his side’s one nil defeat of Chile in the ongoing Copa America football tournament.

Suarez’s strike at goal, in the twenty-second minute of the encounter, was thwarted by Arias in the penalty area. It was, however, strange that the striker called for a penalty kick awarded against the goalkeeper.

According to Mail Online, the incident come exactly five years to the day when Suarez bit Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini in a group-stage decider at the 2014 World Cup, which saw him banned for four months.
