Ruthless Luis Suarez Places Blame On Gyan For Ghana's Infamous 2010 World Cup Exit

Uruguay face off against Ghana at the the World Cup tomorrow, the first time the two sides have met since the infamous handball of Luis Suarez in South Africa in 2010.

At today's press-conference in Qatar, Uruguay did not feel the need to shy away from any controversy, and duly sent up Suarez to answer questions from the media.

For those of you who need reminding: at the 2010 World Cup, Uruguay faced Ghana in the quarter-finals. With normal time nearing its end, Suarez stopped a certain goal from going in and giving Ghana the lead. Suarez was sent off but Asamoah Gyan missed the spot-kick, and Uruguay would go onto win the game.

Suarez was asked at today's presser whether he felt guilty over the incident. His response was curt and unsympathetic:

I didn't miss the penalty. It's not my fault.

Andre Ayew: "I’m the only one left in the squad from when that happened. Everyone knows how we felt. Everyone felt bad but, for me, I just want to get to the next stage at this World Cup.

“It’s not about revenge. Whether it was, or not, we’ll go with the same determination and same desire to win because we want to reach the next stage. I don’t think Ghana has forgiven Luis Suarez. But for me, it’s football. He took a decision. There’s nothing to speak about.”

Thomas Partey: "History is always there. Everyone was very sad at the time. It was very difficult. This is a new generation. We have another chance and we have to forget what happened. This is a new time.”
