      Sorry, the deliberate handball that cost Ghana the match.

      Not your thoughts.

        I guess it's what they call a professional foul. Sacrafice a player and who knows what will happen with the penalty.

            I agree. A sending off and a penalty is a pretty tough sanction but when it's in the dying seconds of the game the sending off is pretty irrelavent.

            On the BBC the Uruguayan manager, Tabarez, said: "Saying we cheated Ghana is too harsh a word to use. Yes he stuck his hand out but it's not cheating. It was instinctive."
