Is it a curse that Ghana should always lose a crucial penalty against Uruguay in a World Cup match?
That was a question from the "Social Corner" on SuperSports on Saturday (December 3, 2022) evening during a review of the USA v. The Netherlands one sixteenth knockout match, where Netherlands beat USA 3:1.
Ghana's Asamoah Gyan who is a panel member on SuperSports for the World Cup was asked the question and this was his response.
Gyan had been asked a similar question on Friday (December 2, 2022) about how he feel about the penalty miss and he responded.
When it was asked for the second time on Saturday, this was his response.
"It happened again yesterday.
For me, I know what Andre [Dede Ayew] is going through right now.
Maybe he might act very strong but he is human,
It looks like history has repeated itself again in some way but,
I don't think it is a curse, it is one of those things
Things happen in football
And of course we just have to be strong and move forward
You might never know. As I said earlier, the Uruguayans were laughing 12 years ago 
And now they are going home crying
The person [Lius Suarez] who was laughing at Ghana was crying yesterday
So two things, you cannot predict anything in the future
We didn't know it was going to happen again
But we have to stay strong mentally and move on
Football, we are not playing football forever
Maybe our kids will come to redeem us one day, you might never know, Gyan said.
After his response, the host said Asamoah Gyan deserves a hug from the SuperSports 'Social Corner' team.
