It’s official. The first quarter-final of the FIFA World Cup 2014 features 5-time winners Brazil and winsome Colombia.

Escobar’s ghost be damned—the mafia don, not the footballer!

The rest of the line-up will follow over the next three nights.

Suarez! Talk about Suarez!

What about Luis, the man-eater of Salto, Uruguay?

The man sure has bite in him; both in front of goal and while gorging on all things edible.

His cannibalistic tendencies came to the fore in the final league game against ItalyGiorgio Chiellini, the victim of no love bite.

“A small bite for Luis Suarez, a giant one for Liverpool”. Indeed!

Soccer took a backseat while off-field jibes at Suarez hogged the world headlines.

Perhaps, some semblance of order will be restored this week when play on the football field returns to centre-stage.

Uruguayans, meanwhile, will mourn their country’s ouster from the World Cup; their favourite son—both saviour and devourer.

Till then, have a great week!
