it has to be kicked forward
A penalty kick is awarded for an infraction within the penalty area. When the kick is laid up the goalkeeper is not allowed to leave his/her line before the ball has been kicked.
The penalty kick must have a forward component. The only restriction is that the kicker may not touch the ball again until another player has touched it.
Generally, a soccer ball kicked below the center will go upward.
The ball is placed within the goal area. Once it is kicked, the ball may not be touched by anyone until it leaves the penalty area.
The furthest a soccer ball has been kicked is 80 meters or 262.46 feet!!!
When a football is kicked, some of the force is absorbed by the football, and any force remaining is transferred in propulsion of the football forward.
