I feel that soon FIFA will have to address the clutching and grabbing on set piece defending that has taken over the sport lately. Until then, however, players are left to their own devices to try to quell this. Here’s Luis Suarez of Uruguay taking matters into his own hands against Gonzalo Jara of Chile during a corner. As you can see, Suarez is being hugged tightly by Jara, and he decides to retaliate by essentially punching Jara in the face.

Suarez will more than likely face a ban from FIFA for this, but as I said, this mugging in the box on set pieces must be addressed. It’s becoming shameful.

Chile won this match in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying 2-0.

    Sometimes, football players are like little children, honestly. Kids in kindergarten try to do this every single time....
