The goal was made during a first division game between the two teams. When a soccer player goes down with an injury, it’s customary that the ball gets played out of bounds, but since the referee didn’t blow the whistle, the game went on. While the play was not entirely ethical, it was still legit. The Guardian reports that Alva had no remorse and backed up his goal.

“Football is for the living,” Alva commented.
