Footballer Suarez refused to apologize at the World Cup to Ghanaians who consider him the “devil”
MOSCOW, 1 Dec – Uruguay’s Luis Suarez, at a pre-match press conference, refused to apologize to the Ghanaians for handballing in a World Cup match 12 years ago, which led to the relegation of the African team in the playoffs.
National teams of Uruguay and Ghana will meet in the match of the third round of the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar on December 2. Previously, these teams met in the 1/4 finals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. At the end of that game, Suárez handballed the ball off the goal line after Dominic Adiya’s shot and was sent off. However, the Africans failed to convert the penalty and ended up losing, failing to become the first African team to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup.
