I'm not just a guy on a wrestling forum though. I'm a guy on a wrestling forum who saw it several times from various different angles, in real time and in slow-motion.
The commentators on my stream were awful though (I think it was Sky Sports). At first they said it was going to be red and were talking about a two-footed lunge.
For me, he came from the side, with one foot, low, cleanly swept the ball away and the only contact was from the tackled player's momentum taking him into Wilshere.
I'll say it again: it was a thing of beauty.
