Luis Suarez did nothing wrong when he saved a goal-bound shot with his hand during the 2010 World Cup, according to the coach of Ghana, Otto Addo.Information Guide Nigeria
Twelve years ago, in the quarterfinals of the World Cup against Ghana, Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez blocked a goal-bound shot in the waning seconds.

Subsequently, he was sent out, and the Black Stars were handed a penalty kick, which Asamoah Gyan was unable to convert. The score was at 1-1, and the South Americans won the penalty shootout to add salt to injury.
Suarez has subsequently been viewed as a villain in many corners for denying Africa a chance to reach the semi-finals for the first time in history.NYSC portal
Uruguay is desperate for a victory to advance to the Round of 16, while Ghana will likely advance with a draw. The teams will face again on Friday.

Prior to the contest, Addo asserts that he cannot fault Suarez for what he did because any player would have done the same thing for his country.JAMB portal
“In general, it’s about perspective. If the same incident had happened the other way around and Ghana had proceeded to the semi-finals, everyone would have said that it’s ok, it’s normal that a player would do everything that he can to help his team to go to the semi-finals. So for me, it’s not a big topic,” Addo told the media.
“This is what I wish from every player, to do all that he can do to help his team qualify and sometimes even sacrifice himself with red cards. It was a very sad day for me. I watched it and I was so sad. But this is my perspective. If I see it from another perspective it’s a normal thing so for me it’s not a big topic and I’m going into the match like every other match.”
Qualification is still firmly in the hands of the Black Stars, who will relish the chance to eliminate Uruguay from a World Cup after their controversial quarterfinal exit in 2010. If they defeat Uruguay, they have a remote possibility of winning the group if South Korea defeat Portugal.
If the Black Stars tie and South Korea does not win, Addo’s team will also proceed. With a draw for Ghana and a win for South Korea, the team that advances alongside Portugal will be determined by goal differential.
South America will serve as Ghana’s final opponent in Group H. The Stars are in second place with three points, while South Korea and Uruguay each have one.JAMB Result
After winning their first two matches, Portugal has already advanced.
