Luis Suarez saves Uruguay with a handball

The best play of the game was a forward using a handball on the line to deny a goal, and getting expelled for it. Amazing.

It was very amazing, and very bizarre. The penalty kick, which should be automatic for a striker like Asamoah Gyan (who had already made 2 at that point).

But he missed. It hit the crossbar when the goal would have mattered the most. It would have put Ghana in its first semifinal ever. Heck, it would have but ANY African nation in its first semifinal ever. In a World Cup being played in Africa no less. But he missed. And you don’t deserve to win when you don’t take advantage of an easy opportunity.

Ghana lost in penalty kicks. Luis Suarez is a hero for Uruguay. Diego Forlan’s great game will be lost in all the chaos. And now, Uruguay must get ready to face the Netherlands without Luis Suarez, without Fucile (who put in a magnificent performance) and without their captain Diego Lugano that injured his knee.
