Luis Suárez did what we all would’ve done, made an amazing goal line save in the last minute of extra time in a World Cup Quarter Final despite the fact that he is a prolific striker as opposed to his team’s goal keeper. He was caught, sent off, will miss the Semi Final and the opposition had a penalty with the last kick of the game. Which they missed. Hardly Luis’ fault is it?
Someone compared this to Maradona who, if memory serves we right, got away scot free with scoring a goal with what looked like his hand but what later turned out to be the hand of God. Now THAT is cheating. But let’s be honest, you wouldn’t've owned up to that either.
People have criticized England for not caring enough, not showing enough passion, not playing for the shirt. This poor guy left the field in tears after doing something that might, just might have given his country a slim chance of progressing in the competition. His gamble paid off.
We shouldn’t call this man a cheat, he is a martyr, he sacrificed himself for his homeland. Luis Suárez, I salute you.
While I’m on the subject of homelands, Marcel Desailly, you may have been born in Ghana but when you were a world class footballer you didn’t show much patriotism did you (116 French caps)? I suppose you could be forgiven for playing for your parent’s country of birth, many have. Unfortunately Marcel, both your parents are Ghanaian. Desailly is a very French name though, as is Marcel, must have some French blood in you somewhere. Nope you changed it from Odenke Abbey, the name you were born with.
For all your jumping up and down, it would seem, when it came down to it, you showed more loyalty to your French step father than you did to your country of birth.
Oh, and Brazil are out. How about that eh?
