Suarez reflects on infamous incident against Ghana at 2010 World Cup

The Uruguay star talks about their controversial win over the Black Stars at South Africa 2010 as he prepares for his third World Cup tournament, Uruguay striker Luis Suarez looks back on his headline-making debut in South Africa eight years ago.

In the quarterfinal fixture against Ghana, the then Ajax ace became the talk of town as he slapped out goal-bound effort on the line to deny the Black Stars a 2-1 win at the depth of extra-time.

His action led to a straight red card while Ghana were awarded a penalty which Asamoah Gyan unfortunately missed. The game eventually ended in a shootout won by Uruguay 4-2.

“When Ghana missed the penalty, Sebastian Eguren gave me a hug,” Suarez told Kicker.

“On the way to the cabin [after receiving the red card], I was very down.

“A lot of things went through my head. Shit, red, we’re leaving! A feeling of pain.

“But Seba stopped me, so I was out of the player’s tunnel and was able to see them miss the penalty.”

Uruguay, however, bowed out of the tournament in the semis following a 3-2 defeat to the Netherlands.

This year, Uruguay have been pitted against Egypt, Russia and Saudi Arabia in Group A.
