A goal kick is a direct free-kick awarded to the defending team. It is awarded when a player from the attacking team causes the ball to cross the goal line and a goal is not awarded (for example, because the ball went wide of the goal, or a the ball crossed to goal line as a result of an indirect free-kick). A goal-kick is taken by the goalkeeper or any defending player placing the ball in his own goal area (six yard box) and hoofing the ball upfield. Technically a hoof is not compulsory, but the fast majority of goal-kicks are hoofed upfield. All members of the attacking team must leave the penalty area until the ball has left the penalty area following a goal kick. The ball must leave the penalty directly from the kick. If the kicker fails to kick the ball outside the penalty area, the kick is retaken. A goal can be scored from a goal kick, because a goal can be scored from a direct free-kick. An own-goal cannot be scored from a goal kick, because an own-goal cannot be scored from a direct free-kick. A goal kick is called a goal kick because it is taken from the goal area (six yard box). A player cannot be offside from a goal kick.

A goal kick is taken when a team has kicked the ball over the end line of the opposing team without it going over the goal. At that time, the goalie or defender or somebody who can kick the ball to atleast half field comes and places the ball on the 6 yard box which is the box closest to the goal. After the ball is placed on the 6 yard box, it can be kicked as far as possible up the field, or even passed quickly to the closest defender.

What is it called when someone does an indirect free kick and score an own goal?

You cannot score an own-goal directly from an indirect free kick or even a direct free kick. If the kick was taken from inside the kicker's penalty area and did not exit the penalty area before exiting the field, then the restart would be a rekick. If the kick was taken from outside kicker's penalty area or left the penalty area before exiting the field, then the restart would be a corner kick for the attacking team

Can a defender stay in the box when a goal kick is taken?

Yes, there are no rules stipulating that defenders are not allowed in the box when a goal kick is being taken. Case in point: Some defenders are known to take goal kicks for the goalkeepers, and given that the ball is in the box for the goal kick, the defender is already in the box along with the goalkeeper whilst taking it.Do take note though, that the ball must be passed out of the box from a goal kick, i.e, the goal kick cannot be passed to a teammate (defender or otherwise) who is also in the box.


What is the definition of a penalty kick?

A penalty kick is the method of restarting play when a defender commits a direct free kick offense within their own penalty area. There are 10 direct free kick offenses listed in the Laws of the Game. Play is stopped. The goalkeeper must be on the goal line, between the posts, and facing forward until the kick is taken. All non-kicking players must be outside of the penalty area, outside of the penalty arc, and behind the ball until the kick is taken. The ball is placed on the penalty mark. The whistle is blown. The kicking player may stutter step, but not stop, and must kick the ball once the plant foot is down. The kicking player may not touch the ball a second time until another player has touched it.


What purpose is the D on the edge of the eighteen yard box?

The D keeps players 10 yards from the Ball when a penalty kick is taken. Whenever a free kick is taken, the defending team must always be 10 yards away from the ball. This includes penalty kicks. The penalty spot is 12 yards from the goal line. The penalty area is 18 yards from the goal line. All players have to be outside of the box when the penalty kick is taken. Without the D, the players standing behind the penalty taker would only be 6 yards from the ball. So, from the penalty spot, a 10 yard radius is drawn and marked only outside the penalty box (so it ends up looking like a D)


Who should retake a penalty kick in soccer?
