    WOW personally I am still in shock by what took place in that game. Although I do see both of your poitns, you have to give credit to Suarez who saved the World Cup for his team and country. The man knew it was the last play of the game and made an unbelievably brilliant play. In all honesty Ghana should have slammed the door shut by making the penalty, but the shockingly missed it and they have no one but Mr. Gyan to blame for that. Also, what was the deal with their two missed penalties? It seriously looked like those guys were trying to pass the ball in unexceptable in that situation.Agreed though that they should look at giving the referee discretion to award a goal in a situation like that where the player clearly blocked a certain goal.
