888 Brand Ambassador Luis Suárez has made his mark on the football World Cup—and on Italian player Giorgio Chiellini.
It was first hinted by poker journalist Barry Carter that the non-native English speaking Suárez may have been confused by the actual name of his online poker sponsor (888poker) when he attempted to feast on the Italian defense in the World Cup match between Italy and Uruguay on Tuesday.
This is not the first time Uruguayan Suárez has succumbed to his inner vampire, as William Hill reminded the twitterverse.
Uruguay went on to win the match 1-0 continuing Suárez’ record of never having lost a match after biting someone.
Calls for 888poker to sack their ambassador followed swiftly.
888sport refused to ignore the issue and set their Twitter followers a question.
Daleroxxu was the first online poker Team Pro to be dropped as the result of World Cup fever, Dale won’t be pleased if Suárez isn’t the second.
