Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

Has Uruguayan luck run out? We’ll find out in less than an hour as the two time winning Cinderella squad from South America meets Wesley Sneijder and his flying Dutchmen in the first of FIFA World Cup semi-finals for 2010.

My take, it’s unfair to say Uruguay are cheats because of the Suarez handball against Ghana. Those in the blogsphere claiming such simply don’t know footy.

Prior to that split-second reaction Suarez had not draw even one yellow card, and need we forget so quickly Ghana was awarded a penalty kick a fair and just compensation as well as Suarez’s one match ban.

Reading blog and twitter responses from those opposed to the continued participation of the Uruguayans in this tournament have started to make my blood boil.
Calls for a life-time ban on Suarez are frankly ludicrous.

Luis Suarez is a world-class finisher with remarkable technical ability. The Uruguayan hitman is blessed with a powerful shot, can score from distance and has an uncanny ability to dominant opponents in the air from set-plays.  This 6’1″ Ajax tower, regardless of current controversy, will be a oh so hot commodity for his club team in the post World Cup world.
