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.

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.
