The Liverpool striker will be banned from all football stadia until October 26 as well as Uruguay's next nine competitive matches following a Fifa report on the incident.

But the South American outfit are hopeful of having the suspension reversed or at least cut, though Suarez will still miss his side's second round World Cup encounter against Colombia on June 29.

"It feels like Uruguay has been thrown out of the World Cup," Uruguay Football Association chairman Wilmar Valdez told reporters. "We are preparing our appeal now."

Valdez also claimed that the ban represented an "exaggerated decision" from Fifa and claimed there was no evidence to support such a severe suspension.

Liverpool, meanwhile, cannot appeal the ban, and have issued a statement revealing they will review Fifa's report before making any further comment.
