12 years have now passed since that fateful quarter-final tie in South Africa, when Luis Suarez was sent off for preventing a certain winning goal with a handball on the line in the dying seconds of extra-time, only for Asamoah Gyan to miss the resulting penalty and Ghana to fall in heartbreaking fashion in the shootout. Ghanaian fans still hold plenty of animosity for that divisive act from Suarez hailed as villainous in some parts and genius in others, which adds extra spice to a key clash in the final round of Group H fixtures.
