Best Answer

I cannot imagine such a situation.

Only a player may score a goal. A substitute, or starter, only becomes a player once they step onto the field.

So it appears to be a logical impossibility that a person who has not stepped onto the field can score a goal.

Why in soccer do they have to throw in?

A team is given a throw in when the ball exits the pitch on the wings after touching a member of the opposing team last. The throw must be over the head, with two hands on the ball, and two feet touching the floor as the ball is released. A goal cannot be scored directly from a throw in.

Where does the ball have to be to score a goal in soccer?

A goal can be scored from anywhere on the pitch, even an opposing team's goal kick can count as a goal if it goes in. There are a few scenarios where a goal cannot be allowed - if a ball goes in from a throw-in without touching a player it cannot stand as a goal. If a goal is scored from an indirect free kick without being taken as such, it does not count. To be counted as a goal, the entire ball needs to cross the goal line, in between the two posts and underneath the crossbar.

If the play is scored as a passed ball it is an error. It should only be scored a passed ball/wild pitch if a runner advances, or on the third strike the batter reaches first base safely. The scoring is sometimes a judgment call. Some statisticians are more strict on calling it a passed ball or wild pitch.
