Also called "assistant referee". Duties include: Calling the ball out of play, determining the team that is awarded a corner kick, goal kick or throw-in, calling offside, notifying the referee of a pending situation, monitoring for misconduct and any duty that the referee deems necessary.

Note that to be out of play, the ball must entirely cross the side line (touchline) — not just touch it.
