The appeal process is underway, but I do not expect it to make any difference to the World Cup. Fifa simply could not afford to see Luis Suarez kicking another football in Brazil.
What is interesting is this grey area around how this impacts Liverpool, because we are in new territory here.
Fifa for the first time has effectively punished a club for something that a player as done on the international stage.
Now that situation has never been tested before and I guess that Liverpool's lawyers will have plenty to say when they manage to have a look at the fine print of this judgement, and that's whether the club want Luis Suarez to stay at Liverpool or not.
Fifa is hoping to quickly deal with disciplinary procedures against Luis Suarez, fully aware that Uruguay's next World Cup match comes on Saturday.
The deadline for Suarez to present his case passed this evening, and his lawyer has been with the organisation's bosses all day, providing the disciplinary committee with 17 pages of witness statements.
If there is an appeal, the Court of Arbitration for Sport has the ability to convene an emergency meeting in Rio.
The implications if he is banned are, of course, very serious for Uruguay and for Suarez, but they could potentially hurt Liverpool too.
If he does get a ban, due to the seriousness of the case and his history of controversies it may just well extend beyond international football - though there is currently no precedent for that.
