Best Answer

A penalty corner should be awarded, unless the attackers were deliberately driving the ball under the keeper (in which case the defense would get a free hit). There is also the scenario in which the keeper has deliberately blocked the ball with no intention of clearing it, simply to deny the ball to the opposition. Here a penalty stroke may be justly awarded, but it is a brave umpire that does so.

Soccer Goalkeeper's punt and scores is the goal valid?

Yes, a goalkeeper can score that way. It's unusual, but there are a whole bunch of examples available on video where just that thing has happened. Many times it involves an error on the part of the defending keeper, but it happens. I recall seeing one where there was a lot of wind behind a keeper who kicked a ball upfield. The kick was a good one, and the wind carried it well across the half line. The defending keeper misjudged how far the ball would bounce, however, and came out too far in an attempt to take control of the ball. It bounced over his head and into the net. Goal!

In taking a field hockey penalty stroke where do the goalkeeper's feet have to be before the stroke is taken?

Both of the goalkeeper's feet must be on the goalline (the section of the backline between the goalposts). Ideally, they would be as far forward as possible - only the slightest part of the heel needs to be touching the line and this puts you as close to the ball as you can get.
