You know how before every match the assistant referees going prodding around the goal with their flag? Well, we reckon one of the linesmen at this under 17s match between Brazil and Paraguay might be facing the chop after a pretty serious oversight on his behalf.

Brazil striker Lucas Piazon managed to break the net with what was, let’s face it, not the most powerful striker you will ever see. The ball crept through a gap between the post and the net.

Fortunately, the referee spotted that it was a goal.
