Luis Suarez’s bite on Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini has led to an amusing recreation of the classic football game Subbuteo.

In the video, nine miniature figures are placed on a football table – unaware that a set of clockwork teeth is about to rip through their ranks.

Just five of the players survive the onslaught as the teeth charge towards goal, even having a mischievous bite of the net in a scene akin to Ivory Coast goalkeeper Boubacar Barry’s celebration on Tuesday.

Watch the devastation unfold below:

Suarez received a nine-match international ban for the incident and was also barred from all football-related activity for four months – ruling him out of the World Cup and preventing him from representing Liverpool until the end of October.

In response to FIFA’s verdict, the Uruguay FA announced that they would appeal the ban.

But perhaps even they might see the funny side of this video.
