Retired Uruguayan goalkeeper Juan Castillo has narrowed down his joyful moment on the Africa soil during the 2010 World Cup against Ghana in the quarter-final clash in South Africa.

The former Liverpool De Montevideo keeper actually fainted during the celebration when Asamoah Gyan missed the deadlock last-minute penalty against the La - Celeste lads and went ahead to ask for the jersey of goalkeeper Richard Kingston after the match.

Despite not making appearances for Uruguay in the 2010 World Cup, his team finished fourth in the tournament.

Castillo's first appearance for Uruguay was in a friendly match against South Africa, in a game that finished goalless draw and was also named the second choice goalkeeper of the Uruguay National Team in 2010 World Cup, being Fernando Muslera the titular goalkeeper.

The 42 year old who enjoyed most of his career in the South American continent playing for over thirteen clubs showed his large jersey collection, which included what goalkeeper Kingston wore for Ghana in the 2010 World Cup quarterfinals match.
