I didn’t miss the penalty, it’s not my fault…Luiz Suarez to Ghanaians
Uruguay star, Luiz Suarez has no regrets over the handball incident against Ghana at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Ahead of the crucial encounter between Ghana and Uruguay in Qatar which could determine the fates of the two countries tomorrow, the Athletico Madrid forward has made it clear he was not responsible for what happened.
At a press conference ahead of the game, he was asked if he would apologise to Ghana for the incident.
In his response, Suarez said,“I don’t need to apologize. I’d apologize if I injured a player, but in this situation, I handled the ball, I take a red card and the Ghana player missed the penalty. It’s not my fault. I didn’t miss the penalty. It’s not my responsibility.”
The Black Stars are one game from reaching the World Cup knockout stages for the first time in 12 years when Luis Suarez cost them the chance to become the first ever African nation to reach the semi-finals.
Suarez’s infamous handball in extra-time prevented a certain goal that would have sent Ghana into the final four in 2010.
Unfortunately, Asamoah Gyan missed the resulting penalty and Uruguay prevailed in the shootout.
