Best Answer

When a penalty kick scores, it counts as a goal (just as any other goal). Penalty kicks that do not score (similar to regular goals) count for nothing.

The exception are kicks from the penalty mark (the "Penalty Shootout": the tie-breaker sometimes used when a game must have a winner, such as in most tournaments). When these kicks are successful, they are not counted as goals, but tracked separately to determine the winner.
