Ghana’s Black Stars captain Andre Ayew says the team shouldn’t view the game against Uruguay as a revenge.
In 2010, Luis Suárez handled Dominic Adiyiah’s goal bound header in the quarter final at the FIFA Mundial in Africa.
Despite the pains caused by the subsequent penalty miss by Asamoah Gyan after Suárez handball, the now Black Stars captain says there’s no need to view the game as a revenge.
“As a team leader, I don’t believe we should view this game as revenge,” Ayew said on Ghana Soccer Net.
“Instead, we must be smart enough to recognise that it is a match we need points from. We just want to win against Uruguay after everything that has been said in the media.
“As a player, if you go into a game with the intent of retaliation, you can make a lot of mistakes and be hyper,” he continued.
“We just need to stay calm, follow the plan, and try to win the game, or do whatever we can to advance to the next stage.”
