Yes, then he or she can handle it. If you just kick it back to him or her then they can't handle it and must kick it. If an opposing team member has made contact with the ball or had a shot, the goal keeper may handle the ball.

An overview of soccer?

Soccer is a sport where there is a large rectangular field with netted goals on each end of the field. The point of the game is to try to make the soccer ball go in the opposing teams net. You have to keep the ball in bounds. If your team kicks the ball out of bounds, the opposing team throws the ball in with two hands over the head, making sure to keep their feet on the ground. You must only use your feet in this game, except for throw-ins. Also, the goalie can pick the ball up when the ball is in the area marked off that is close to the goal. The goalie must try to not allow the ball to make it into the net. If a goal is scored, the opposing team scores one point. If someone uses their hands on the field and they are not the goalie, there is a penalty called. When this happens, the ball is placed on the ground from which the foul occurred and the opposite kicks the ball. That is a basic overview of soccer!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!
