This question already has an answer here:
In Law 11 - Offside, Section 2 - Offside Offence it says that an offside-positioned player is penalised for offside if they have considered to have gained an advantage by
by playing the ball or interfering with an opponent when it has:
- rebounded or been deflected off the goalpost, crossbar, match official or an opponent
- been deliberately saved by any opponent
If a defender attempts to intercept a ball that has been played to an offside-positioned attacker who is through on goal, but miskicks it directly into the attacker's path, does this count as a deliberate save?
If this is the case, is the attacker penalised for being in an offside position?
