World Cup handball freak bite results in red and blue card for American Paul Skoruba | Other sports

With videoAn incident at the Volleyball World Cup on Thursday evening immediately brings to mind Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan footballer made a habit of biting his opponent a few years back, and that’s what happened in the group match between the United States and Bahrain.

With the score 21-19 in favor of Bahrain, the stops seemed to go too far for Paul Skoruba. The American grabbed his opponent Hussain Al-Sayad (35) very tightly and appeared to bite his hand. The Bahraini player immediately showed his upper hand to the referee, who issued a red card, forcing Skoruba to leave the field.

After watching TV footage, the American even had a blue card. This means that the infraction is so serious that a penalty can be imposed after the game in which it is committed. Bahrain eventually won 32-27.
