Does a soccer player to be onside have to wait for a played ball to go over his head?

A pass-receiving player must be inline or ahead of (i.e. not be closer to the goal line) the last outfield defender at the time that the pass is struck. Once the pass has been struck, he may sprint behind the last defender and be in a one-on-one with the goalkeeper.If the ball hits the referee or the goal frame, the time of the shot is what counts to determine if a player is onside or offside, not the time at which the ball hits the ref or frame.If a ball comes from a defender (for example from miskicking the ball or miscalculating a pass), nobody is offside.If one player is offside but another player is onside and can still receive the ball, the offside player may decide to not interfere with the play by standing or walking away from the goal line in order to keep the game going.
