Offside?

Offside?

A home team player passes back towards a team-mate – but the ball strikes the heel of an opponent and flies forward to the home team’s star striker, who is in an offside position. The striker races away unchallenged and scores –but the keeper insists he was offside. The striker says he was ‘played on’.
What is your decision? Is it a goal?

 

You are the ref

Read the statements below and decide which is best. In this case, is it a goal or not?.
Yes - It's a goal!

Sorry, that's not the right answer.

Keith Hackett: The home player in the offside position has an unfair advantage, so must be penalised, as stated in law, ‘the moment the ball touches or is played by one of his team’.

‘Played on’ hasn’t existed in the laws of the game since 1978.

No - It's not a goal!

Correct!

As of the time the ball was being played he was offside so it's not a goal

I may be mistaken, but according to the recent developments in the rules of the game if such back-heeling is unintentional, the striker is played on and a goal should be allowed.
