Winning at Any Cost
Uruguay has been one of the more positive sides during the 2010 World Cup but Luis Suarez's deliberate handball was deplorable. He turned what would have been one of the classic comeback stories for African soccer into one of the most heartbreaking "what could have been" exits from the World Cup. With the win at any cost mentality, Suarez's action was completely understandable. But with any other mentality, one can only hope that Ghana still feels very proud of what they accomplished -- with the youngest team in the tournament -- and that FIFA follows through with its threat to ban Suarez for two matches instead of simply one. At the least, Suarez should not be able to enjoy more matches during this tournament.
