There is an imagineryt line in front of the goal post, beyond which line the opponent player is not supposed to stand. When he is there and the players hits a goal, it is considered as no goal (an off side goal).

Despite being one of the shortest of the 17 Laws of football, the offside rule, Law 11, is probably the most misunderstood rule in football. It is also one that raises much controversy owing to the subjective element of the referee's call. And yet, FIFA reassures us that it is actually one of the easiest rules to understand.

Offside is a law in association football which states that if a player is in an offside position when the ball is touched or played by a teammate, he may not become actively involved in the play. A player is in an offside position if he is closer to the opponent's goal line than both the ball and the second-to-last defender (which is usually the last outfield player), but only if the player is in his opponent's half of the pitch. "Offside position" is a matter of fact, whereas committing an "offside offence" occurs when a player is "actively involved" and is subject to the interpretation of the referee. Goals scored after committing an offside offence are nullified if caught by the referee.
