Soccer may be the beautiful game, but it sure has its ugly moments. On Tuesday, Uruguay’s Luis Suarez took a bite out of Italian player and didn’t even get a penalty — though he may end up being suspended for his actions.

Yet somehow, Suarez chowing down on an opponent’s shoulder is far from the only shocking World Cup moment, and may not even be the worst.
