Uruguay's Luis Suarez says he will not apologise to Ghana for his handball that knocked them out of 2010 World Cup

Uruguay will face Ghana in their last match of Group H in what has been termed as the most exciting fixture of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Luis Suarez denied Ghana access to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa after a deliberate handball in the quarter-finals of that year's edition.

Suarez stopped Steven Appiah's shot on the goal line hence triggering a penalty kick. The Uruguayan was red carded but he seemed unbothered as he exited the pitch.

Asamoah Gyan took the penalty for Ghana but he didn't score since he crashed the ball over the bar. Suarez was seen celebrating after the kick as he exited the pitch.

Ghana lost to Uruguay on penalties hence denying the Black Stars an opportunity to play in the semi-finals. Uruguay has stated that he will not apologise since he was not Ghana's penalty taker.

"I did the handball, but the Ghana player missed the penalty, not me. Maybe I would apologise if I did a tackle, injured a player and took a red card. But in this situation... it's not my fault.

"I didn't miss the penalty. The player who missed the penalty, he would do the same. It's not my responsibility how he shot the penalty." Said Suarez.

Many people are vouching for Ghana to win when they face Uruguay. It will be a match full of bad memories from 12 years ago in South Africa. The match will kick-off at 18:00 pm EAT.
