Suarez unapologetic  for handball that sent Ghana crashing out of 2010 World Cup

Uruguay forward Luis Suarez has refused to apologise for the handball that sent Ghana crashing out of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

The former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid star deliberately stopped a goal-bound ball with his hands during the quarter final clash that would have seen the Black Stars become the first African team to ever reach the World Cup semi finals.

Suarez denied Ghana an extra-time winner and ultimately sent them painfully  crashing out of the competitions.

In a Thursday’s press conference ahead of Friday’s final Group H match of this year’s World Cup, a Ghanaian reporter asked Suarez if he feels sorry for the incident.

However, Suarez insisted it was Ghana’s fault for missing their penalty after  Asamoah Gyan failed to convert a subsequent spot kick.

According to the Daily Mail, the same journalist referred to Suarez as ‘the devil’ himself as Uruguay and Ghana go head-to-head once again on Friday afternoon.

Suarez responded to the comment by saying: ‘The first time, I don’t apologise about that. I take the handball – but the Ghana player miss a penalty, not me.

Suarez was sent off after denying Ghana a ticket to the tournament’s semis.

‘Maybe I apologise if I injure a player but in this situation, I take a red card, the ref say penalty, it’s not my fault.’

The painful memories 12 years down the line are still fresh among Ghanaian and African football fans ahead of Friday’s crucial encounter between the two ends.

Ghana will face the South Americans seeking revenge, knowing a draw should be enough to take them through to the last 16 at the expense of their bitter enemies.

Suarez was seen celebrating Gyan’s missed penalty as he headed down the tunnel. The particular clash was decided in penalties but Uruguay eventually won 4-2.
