 The 2010 World Cup quarter-final between Uruguay and Ghana had already been rollicking entertainment as it headed towards a penalty shootout at 1-1, when Luis Suarez entered international infamy with a deliberate handball on the line in the 120th minute to claw away a certain goal. Referee duly pointed to the penalty spot, and red-carded Suarez for the offence. Asamoah Gyan skied his penalty off the top of the crossbar, and set up a dramatic shootout victory for the South Americans. (Getty Images)
