How close can a defensive wall be to a soccer penalty kick?

On a penalty kick, the defensive "wall" is one person, the goalkeeper, who must be on the goal line between the goalposts until the ball is kicked. The penalty mark is 12 yards from the goal line, so the "wall" (goalkeeper) must be 12 yards from the ball. On a free kick (sometimes mistakenly called a "penalty kick outside the box"), all defensive players (including the "wall") must retreat to at least 10 yards from the ball. On an indirect free kick within the penalty area, the defenders may stand on the goal line between the goalposts even if it's less than 10 yards away (but it will always be at least 6 yards, because no attacking free kick is ever taken inside the goal box, which is 6 yards from the goal).

Why do they have a wall during a free kick in Soccer?

The "wall" is designed to protect a large portion of the goal or goal area from the offensive strike. It should block the primary area the offensive player would like to place the ball. This allows the goalkeeper to defend the unprotected areas instead of the entire goal or goal box.
