  11. No it's an automatic red card for stopping a goal and a PK. But the Ghana player missed and in the tunnel Luis Suarez celebrated and then they won in a pen shootout (like in hockey) then he came back on the field to celebrate while the ghana players were celebrating. It was the biggest moment of the WC and it was pathetic so the guy who did it is hated GOAL COSTA RICA
