He Will Cry’: Ghana Fans Relish World Cup Revenge Against Suarez
Written by City Radio on December 1, 2022
When Ghana face Uruguay on Friday in their decisive final World Cup group match, one name that will be on the minds of many from the West African country is Luis Suarez.
The Uruguay striker broke Ghanaian hearts at the 2010 World Cup when his deliberate handball stopped a certain goal in the dying stages of their quarter-final.
Suarez was sent off but Asamoah Gyan missed the resulting penalty — cue wild celebrations from Suarez on the sidelines — and Uruguay then beat the Black Stars in the penalty shootout.
It is a dark day scorched deep in the memory of many Ghanaian football fans.
This time it is Uruguay who are up against it — a Ghana win would put them into the last 16 and send Uruguay home, but a draw for Ghana could also be enough.
Current Ghana skipper Andre Ayew, the only player left from the 2010 squad, attempted to play down talk of revenge.
