Luis Suarez could be a protagonist or an antagonist, depending on which side of the “coin” you belong. To some, he is daring and loyal but to others, he is a “spoilt man” who prefers gamesmanship over sportsmanship. Suarez is adored just as much as he is hated.
The name Luis Suarez doesn’t strike a right cord with Ghanaians and to a very large extent, most Africans and football loving people as his deliberate handball prevented Ghana from reaching the semi-finals of the 2010 World Cup, an incident not worth remembering – vis a vis so many other “football crimes”.
And so when his penalty miss against Peru prevented Uruguay from advancing to the semi-final of the ongoing COPA America, some people just wouldn’t feel sorry for him– “Karma is a bitch”, they said.
A distraught Suarez:
Luis Suárez is devastated!

Below are some reactions:
If you are wondering why Luis Suarez missed he penalty against Peru, it's because of the curse people of Ghana placed on him because of that handball that cost them to be eliminated in 2010 world cup. Uruguay may never win any international trophy as long as Suarez still plays. pic.twitter.com/kHJIpMNQd3

You hate to see players distraught in emotion after missing the crucial penalty to knock their own country out. But it makes it a lot easier when it’s a player that cheats & is an absolute disgrace on the pitch. That’s how football works. It will come back to hit you @LuisSuarez9 pic.twitter.com/j9pTOsppeN
