Suarez’s deliberate touch on Dominic Adiyah’s shot on the goal line during Ghana’s World Cup quarterfinal defeat to Uruguay 12 years ago was one of the most disputed moments in World Cup history when the black stars of Ghana had the chance to unite and make all of Africa proud.
Luis Suarez stopped Asamoah Gyan’s penalty kick and was consequently awarded a straight red card for giving up the opportunity to score. As soon as the play ended, Suarez rushed off the field and jumped for joy.
However, the two nations will clash today, and while one of the two legendary players who were the buzz of the game 12 years ago will be absent, Luis Suarez will be available as the Black Stars seek retribution.
However, actress Lydia Forson has revealed on Twitter that she wishes Asamoah Gyan could have played in today’s game, saying it would have been epic.
Taking to Twitter, she wrote:
I really wish @ASAMOAH_GYAN3 was playing today, just this one game, would have been epic.
