Salute the Black Stars of Ghana

Shame on Suarez and Uruguay for a hollow victory!

Outfield players grabbing the ball at the goal line like Suarez did goes against the spirit of the game.

My opinion is that the rules should give the referee the discretion to award a goal in that situation.

Players should know that it's futile to try to illegally block a goal with your hands.

There's enough cynicism in soccer/football already.

Here's hoping the rest of the World Cup is played with the same spirit and determination that Ghana showed playing against Uruguay.
