2 Ghana’s penalty pain
With the Uruguay-Ghana quarterfinal heading into penalty kicks, Luis Suarez intentionally handled the ball on the line, preventing a game winner by Dominic Adiyiah. Suarez was rightly sent off, and Ghana awarded the penalty, but Asamoah Gyan’s spot kick thundered off the crossbar. Uruguay went on to win the penalty shoot-out, and knock out the last remaining African nation. For drama, it couldn’t be beaten.
