- Luis Suarez handled a goal bound effort in the final minute of the semi final game between Ghana and Uruguay
Uruguay forward Luis Suarez has vowed not to visit Africa on his own eleven years after preventing Ghana from reaching the semi finals of the World Cup.
The Atletico Madrid star stood between Africa and a semi final berth after handling a goal bound effort from Dominic Adiyiah at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
In quotes on GHANASoccernet, sighted by YEN.com.gh, the forward told Tales of Africa, he can not travel to the continent following the incident against Ghana.
"I will never visit Africa on my own. Not anytime soon. After my hand save against Ghana. They were through to the semi-finals if I didn't use my hands to save my country. Even if I become a coach, I will coach somewhere else, not there," he is quoted as saying by GHANASoccernet.
Luis Suarez's handball gave Ghana a penalty, which was missed by Asamoah Gyan.
However, Ghanaians and Africans were more peeved by the actions of the ex-Barcelona and Liverpool star, who celebrated while walking off after he was red carded.
The Black Stars went on to lose on penalties 4-2, extending Africa's chase for a semi final place at the World Cup.
Meanwhile, it was Ghana's best appearance at the global showpiece after finishing in the last eight. The third Africa side to achieve that mark after Cameroon and Senegal.
