It has been been 11 years since Luis Suaresz handed a heart break for the whole African continent in South Africa 2010 during a quarter final game against the Black Stars of Ghana.

He was then rewarded by his country for such a wonderful save he made which helped his county to progress to the semi finals in the tournament.

Asamoah Gyan failed to convert the penalty on the 90th minute. The Black Stars of Ghana then failed to make a progress after losing on the penalty shoots.

Striker Dominic Adiyiah and defender John Mensah failed to score from the spot, whiles goal keeper Richard Kingston also failed to make a save.

The South American side won the game on penalties by 4-2 and eventually lost in the semi finals.

When interviewed, Suarez said " I made the best save of the tournament".

Ghanaians and African has still not forgiven this genius striker.
