Ayew: “We seek retribution for what Suarez did to Ghana in 2010

The Black Stars will be out for vengeance when they face Uruguay and striker Luis Suarez in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Group H final match on Friday night, according to former Ghanaian international Ibrahim Ayew.

According to Ayew, Suarez is despised in Ghana and throughout Africa because of what he did to the Black Stars during the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Recall that in the dying seconds of the 2010 World Cup, Suarez’s handball on the goal line prevented Ghana from moving on to the semifinals.

Asamoah Gyan missed the penalty after the former Liverpool and Barcelona star was given his marching orders, and the West African giants lost the shootout.

Ghana will be looking to exact revenge on Uruguay for their infamous loss to La Celeste in the 2010 FIFA World Cup quarterfinals.

Twelve years after the incident, Ayew, who now plays for Bruno’s Magpies, said he wants Ghana to exact revenge on Uruguay and Suarez in an interview with The Athletic.

I assumed we had prevailed. I ran onto the field to celebrate as a substitute warming up behind that goal because I was certain the ball had crossed the goal line. I believed we had accomplished our goal of becoming the first African team to ever advance to the World Cup semifinals, Ayew said.

“The entire nation of Ghana hates him [Luis Suarez], and the entire continent of Africa hates him,” he continued. Yes, we despise him. And we seek retribution.
