Ex-Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac has narrated that he will never forget the 2010 FIFA World Cup defeat Ghana suffered under his watch in the hands of Uruguay after Asamoah Gyan missed from a late minute spot kick.

Ghana would have been the first African nation to reach the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup, if Gyan had scored from the spot kick after Luis Suarez’s hand had prevented Dominic Adiyeah’s header from entering the net in injury time.

Rajevac says he can’t forget that moment because he would have made history and such moments are rare in football.

"Believe me, this end of the match and this elimination, I can not get them out of my head, they are matches like we see very few of them, those who make you go down in history. Who knows, maybe if we had converted this penalty, we might have gone to the end, I'm sure I'll never forget that moment, luck fled that day and she smiled to Luis Suarez, which has even boosted his career, " The Serb lamented in an interview with Goal.com.
