I don't have a clue how you can defend that. You have no idea what that ball could have done. It was a low cross with pace to people diving toward the net. Could have been an own goal easily. It's a PK no matter how inconsequential you think it would have been.

But in the rules of this great sport we love if the ball hits a defenders hand in the box, a PK is awarded. That's the rules. Pretty clear cut. His arm was way extended. He is required to be mindful of his hands especially when he is defending in the box.
