It's not a very classy World Cup Football maneuver, but...
the "offside trap" is a Defensive Football Team's most effective move against a strong Offensive Team. In the illustration above, you see the Offensive Football Team on the attack. An Offensive Player (Number 9) has just kicked the soccer ball to his team mate, who (at this moment) is in a classic offside position running toward the goal. But, what you don't see is that the Defensive Player (now in front of number 9) forced the offside position by running away from the goal mouth (performing an 'offside trap') where he stood just moments before, next to the Goal Keeper. We hope we don't see too many such cowardly (though effective) defensive moves in the upcoming World Cup Football matches...
