  5. 2:19 did you really have to remind us Irish fans of that night in Paris

  11. Offside is a simple rule, it prevents players from waiting for the ball near the opponent area when they are attacking on the other side. You can receive the ball only if there is two opponents between you and their goal line (including the goalie). The key moment is *when* the ball is passed, *not when* the player receives it.
    *BUT* sometimes this rule does not aply, when: You’re on your own half; any throw in or corner kick; you’re behind the position of the ball; the ball comes from a opponent.
    The offside rule is one of the best rules ever created on the history of footbal.

  12. About OFFSIDE – Last defender is not correct. “If attacking player closer to goal line than penultimate player of the defending team”. Penultimate player is not necessary need to be defender, it can be any player of the defending team, even goalkeeper.

  13. Actually the offside rule is explained incorrectly in this video. You are offside when you are more advanced than the penultimate defender as the goalkeeper is included in the rule. Maybe they said that not just to complicate things. Still incorrect though.

  14. You can make fair contact without touching the ball too during shoulder charges, holding the opponent off, and protecting the ball with your body.

  15. Association football is the most popular sport in the world, It is included in the Summer Olympics.

  16. You explained the offside rule the easy way and the way you explained it, it applies probably 99,9% of the time. However the correct definition is not that you can’t be in front of the last opponent defender. The rule is, there must be at least 2 opponent players in front of you (1 of them is almost everytime the opponent’s keeper). There are situations where you still have a defender in front of you and think you’re onside but the opponent’s keeper is behind you so you are offside because there was only one opponent in front of you.

  17. No Ninh Soccer is only at America, Canada, Ireland, Japan, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand
