What is meaning of term ‘Offside’?

Football is the most popular sport in the world. Part of the charm lies in the fact that all that's usually needed to play it is a football, with even makeshift arrangements serving as goal posts when playing for fun. Additionally, the sport is very easy to understand as the rules are very simple…….. except the offside rule.

In simple terms, the offside rule mandates that an attacking player in the opposition half must have at least two opposition players, including the goalkeeper, between her and the opposition goal when a pass is played to her during a move.

Even though the rule has been around for over a century, it isn't easy to understand. The best way to get to grips with it is by watching it in action, for which you will get plenty of chances during the FIFA World Cup that begins on November 20.
