Andre Ayew opens up on Luis Suarez's 2014 handball incident

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has disclosed he would have repeated Luis Suarez's handball incident in 2010 if he was in an identical situation for Ghana.

Luis Suarez became Ghana and to a large extent Africa's No.1 enemy when he denied a goal-bound effort in the dying embers of a quarterfinal clash between Ghana and Uruguay at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The former Liverpool and FC Barcelona striker was given his marching for denying an obvious goal but the resulting penalty was missed by the ever-reliable Asamoah Gyan - his first penalty miss after scoring twice from the spot in the same tournament.
