What is a free kick in American football?

Following possession of a kickoffWhen a team has forced the other team to punt away, and calls a fair catch, they are entitled to take a free kick (fair catch kick in the NFL).

The kick is taken from the yard line of the catch, not from behind a line of scrimmage.Following a safetyA team that gives up a safety delivers a free kick from its own 20-yard line, either from a punt, a placekick without a tee, or a dropkick.

How can a soccer player score 3 legitimate goals in regulation time without another player touching the ball?

It's near the end of the first half, and the player in question scores an own goal. In disgust he retrieves ball from his net. His team then has the re start, so that same player takes the kick-off, kicking directly for the opponent's goal and is fouled in the penalty box. He takes the spot-kick and scores. Ref then blows whistle for half-time, goal scorer retrieves ball from net and hands to ref. At the start of the second half, ref hands match ball to goal scorer who resumes play with kick-off, hits ball into opposing penalty area again and is brought down, penalty. He scores from the spot, no other player has touched the ball during the three-goal sequence.
