Honest player orders referee to disallow goal

Honest football players do exist. Yeah, really.
Marius Ebbers from Sankt Pauli scored with his hand against Union Berlin in the German 2nd Bundesliga. Referee Tobias Welz and his assistants missed it and allowed the goal. “I told the referee that I touched the ball with my head and my hand”, says Ebbers after the match. The referee cancelled the goal and game went on. Sankt Pauli won the match with 2-1 with a goal in the last minute.
