Laws of the Game
1. Goal scored
A goal is scored when the whole of the ball passes over the goal line, between the goalposts and under the crossbar, provided that no offence has been committed by the team scoring the goal.
If the goalkeeper during his save throws the ball directly into the opponents’ goal, a goal kick is not awarded.
If a referee signals a goal before the ball has passed wholly over the goal line, play is restarted with a dropped ball.
