Could you explain what "build-up" means in football?

West Ham vs Manchester City

Man City have the ball in the net, but the linesman has his flag up for offside in the build up. No goal.

The build up is another way of describing the attack. To build or construct an attack means to launch an attack. We might sometimes hear the phrase, 'build up play' which describes how a team moves towards their opponents' goal, how they attack.
