The seriousness of the foul plays a major role in determining the outcome. The referee is incharge of giving the decision, but may rely on his linesmen or 4th official. An offside or minor foul simply results in a free kick. A repeated offender or silly foul will result in a free kick and yellow card. A serious foul such as preventing a goal scoring chance, handling the ball will result in a red card and free kick or penalty depending where the foul occurred.
