Offside?

Goal Kick

Goal Kick

A goalkeeper takes a goal kick, which loops up very high. An attacker on his team, who was standing in an offside position when the ball was kicked, runs back into his own half unmarked and collects the ball.
Do you still give offside? 

 

You are the ref

Read the statements below and decide which is best. In this case, is the player offside or not?.
Yes - It's offside.

Sorry, that's not the right answer. It’s a trick question - you cannot be offside from a goal kick.

Keith Hackett: I am often amazed that players and managers aren’t aware that players can’t be offside from a goal kick. Some teams still fail to take advantage of Law 11 and push their players up into off side positions to gain an advantage.

No - It's not offside.

Correct! You cannot be offside from a goal kick.
