Fair enough and agree nothing deliberate about it.@one fyi

Definitely hits the arm, still think it's a goal mind
Maybe OT but IMO disallowing this goal even next year is unfair. There is nothing he could have done about it. Just because it very accidentally touched an attacker's arm the goal will be disallowed. This is no better than disallowing own goals. It's part of football.
A defender's arm accidentally stopping a goal (or causing a save) is not an offence. Why should an attacker's arm accidentally scoring a goal (or leading to it).
