Most of the time it goes wrong. Especially that way. I presume you know nothing about it since you called it soccer so i thought i would explain it you.
ibra:tries to stay level,nose makes him offside
All it takes is a lapse in concentration from one player and you have conceded a needless goal. It is clever but it is also too risky.
Gilerrr kaaa….bapok kemahhh….(mood-selok)…
Plus sometimes one defender is slow off the mark so he plays every other attacker on side =)
@malikys its an indirect free kick
One line: it is very risky business.
I like how the goalkeeper does the thumbs up to his defenders.
Because. The players expect it have to many counter tactics. Plus some of the Defense can’t make it out in time and give the other team a break away. It’s used lots. We used it many times on my soccer teams. I also got 5 goals from other teams doing it to slow
offiside trap donest work all the time, if one inter player run toward to goal pass the defense and receive the pass and score, it would be legal. Also, it really depends on the referee. by all means if the ref dont call it, it would be a 4 on 1 situation, and most of the time teams dont wanna change it.
yes but it’s so hard to coordinate the entire line to push up at once plus the ref has to catch it. it’s not something to rely on
RUN FORREST RUN :D:D
Later on that year, Inter raped entire Serie A and won the Schudetto again….
It’s a risky move, if they time it incorrectly, they’ve just exposed their goal keeper. It is also not usable in some circumstances as the player with the ball may keep dribbling (doesn’t apply to this video as there was a free kick).
wow, Siena always impresses me!
cause its hard to do it perfectly! And the enemy team can follow the trap then run back into the open space
The offside trap is the most unsporting abuse of a rule in the entirety of sports. The point of the rule is that players don’t hang back for long passes and score easy goals. There should be no offside on free kicks, or when the ball is not kicked. There should also be no offside if a defensive player has a chance to play the ball and does not. (Kind of like icing in hockey. If the linesman feels that a defender could have touched the puck and didn’t. no icing.)
…it’s called soccer by about 400 million people. True, more people in the world call it football. But the US, Canada and Australia already had a sport called football when soccer became popular. Just because more people know it as football does not mean that it is not also soccer. If that were true then everyone in the UK would be putting things in the “trunk” of their cars, not the “boot”.
holland did it once too
looks so funny, all player think: wtf??
No. If the player took a direct shot at goal and scored, then nobody could be classed as being offside.
Oh and it’s called ‘football’, not ‘Soccer’.
because if you do that, some players might pass you and there is no one to stop them and if he passes you he can still pass to another player even if the other player is beside everyone from ur team as long as the other player is behind the player who has the ball.. this is only one reason, there are many more
Players dont do it because it its dangerous. One mistake and ofside line is broken.
