      Question on our second goal. Trent makes a diagonal cross to Diaz who beats Benfica’s offside. He heads the ball to Mane who is behind the last defender.

      Question - why wasn’t Mane ruled offside and what would make Mane offside? Appreciate anyone who can help explain. ;D

      Because Mane was behind/level with Diaz when he headed it across. If Mane was in front of Diaz it would have been offside.

      Is the new offside line Diaz now that the last defender’s offside trap has has been beaten? Interesting that your own player is now an offside trap!

      I think this has always been the rule. Only forward passes can be offside.

      Yep always been the case - at least in my living memory.

      Player A (receiving the pass) can’t be offside if player B (making the pass) is ahead of them, regardless of opposition player.

      Backward passes actually can be offside - direction of the pass is irrelevant. Receiving player could still be in an offside position.
