Mircea Bornescu Bites Thaer Al Bawab During Romanian Soccer Brawl (VIDEO)

Perhaps Romanian goalkeeper Mircea Bornescu took notes from Liverpool's Luis Suarez.

The Petrolul Ploiesti goalie was recently captured biting an opponent during a scuffle on the pitch with players from Gaz Metan Medias in the Romanian Liga I first division. Bornescu appeared to bite Gaz Metan striker Thaer Al Bawab, who retaliated after the chomp in the 64th minute.

According to the Guardian, Petrolul Ploiesti's frustrations boiled over when they felt that Bawab was embellishing an injury. The fight resulted in seven red cards and 13 yellows, as per the Daily Star.
