Martin Odegaard could have had a goal for Arsenal in their 1-0 win against Watford before the international break, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang denied him while in an offside position.
Odegaard’s shot looked certain to go in, but Auba decided to help it in while in an offside position.
Most Arsenal players are with their national team now for the international break and Odegaard was asked about the incident. He hinted at being frustrated.
He told TV2: “It was a bit sour, because I saw it so well from the side, that it was on its way in there.
“I knew as he touched it that he was offside. It was frustrating, but we won the match. That was the most important thing. Then it’s fine. Had they scored at the end, it would probably have been a little heavier.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
Strikers score goals and it’s completely normal that Auba was desperate to get one in this incident.
As Odegaard has rightly said, the most important thing is that the Gunners secured all three points from the game.
The Norwegian has struggled to play for the club recently as Emile Smith Rowe continues to hit top form.
He will hope his performance for Norway in this international window helps him return to the team when the players report back from the break.
