Best Answer

The larger rectangle is called the penalty area. It is 18 yards deep and 44 yards wide. Within this area the defending goal keeper may handle the ball. Any direct free kick offense committed by a defender within this area will result in a penalty kick for the attacking team.

The smaller rectangle is call the goal area. It is 6 yards deep and 20 yards wide. A goal kick may be taken from anywhere within this area. Any indirect free kick offense committed by a defender within this area will result in the indirect free kick being moved to the 6 yard line (top of the area) closest to the point of the infraction. Essentially, no attacking team is going to receive a indirect free kick opportunity 6 inches from the goal mouth.
