The soccer rules state that if the ball exits the field of play over the goal line, and is last touched by the defending team, a corner kick is awarded to the attacking team. This corner kick is to be taken within the arc on the corner of the field, on the side of the goals the ball exited play. The player taking the corner kick is allowed to kick the ball directly into the goal. The corner kick once taking his or her initial kick is not allowed to touch the ball until it has touched at least one other player from either team. Then the attacking team is taking the kick, the defending team is required to be back 10 yards from where the ball is placed. Attacking players that are in an offside position, and receive the ball directly from the corner kick are not deemed offside.
