3-7-5 Diagram

3-7-5 In MechaniGram A, K has 10 players on the field. Although K11 is in the neutral zone after the ball has been declared ready (PlayPic B), it is not encroachment. An entering substitute is not a player for encroachment purposes until he reaches his team's side of the neutral zone. Since the ball is kicked with K11 in the neutral zone, the ball is live and it is an illegal substitution foul for not being on his team's side of the neutral zone when the ball is kicked.
