(ECNS) -- Chinese business owners have quickly begun stocking "Suarez bottle openers" in online shops after Uruguayan footballer Luis Suarez appeared to bite an opponent's shoulder during Tuesday's World Cup match against Italy.

A search for the item on Wednesday returned more than twenty results on Chinese's largest online market Taobao, with prices ranging from 888 yuan to 9,999 yuan ($142 to $1604). Some had already been added to customer watch lists.

Vendors are all using the same promotional photo, which shows a caricature of Suarez opening a beer bottle with his teeth.

Ouyang, one of the vendors who claimed to have designed the photo, said the idea came from a friend who is also a soccer fan.

However, the product is not yet available, she said. "We are preparing for manufacturing, and consumers who like the design can follow us."

She said the main problem concerns the portrait copyright.

The item is priced 3,999.99 yuan in her online shop, but Ouyang said the real price will not be as high after the product hits the market.

Two of the same items were found on US rival eBay, offered by sellers from China and Hong Kong.
