Ghanaians on Twitter are remembering the tragic moment with some humour as they troll Asamoah Gyan over his miss that day.

We were given a penalty deep into extra time, literally the last kick of the game – Gyan missed!

The game went into a penalty shootout and Uruguay won – it was easily the most dramatic moment of the whole tournament.

10 years after we can now laugh a little at the incident although it’s still painful.

Rather than mourn, twitter has decided to use the 10th anniversary to troll Gyan for his miss, sending him to the top of the trends.
