FIFA: No Suarez mask ban

30 June 2014, 08:28

Rio de Janeiro - FIFA has not outlawed pictures or masks with the face of banned Uruguay striker Luis Suarez at the Soccer World Cup, the ruling body insisted on Sunday.

Reports said that some Uruguay fans were not allowed to take the masks or pictures into the Maracana for the last 16 game against Colombia on Saturday, but FIFA spokesperson Delia Fischer said that there was no such order to stewards.

"There was no such order. There were a lot of masks. Maybe some stewards acted on their own," Fischer said.

Suarez was banned for nine national team games and four months in general from football activities by FIFA for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini during a group game on Tuesday. Uruguay lost Saturday's game 2-0 and are out of the tournament.

Suarez is still present at the World Cup, in a video highlighting some of the best goals of the showcase tournament, broadcast in media centres and other areas.
