In general terms, it is in whatever direction you're facing.

I expect you ask because of the requirement that the ball is kicked forward on a kick-off. The definition on a kick-off is "more towards the opponent's goal line than your own."

When a soccer ball is kicked the action and reaction forces do not cancel each other out because?

when a soccer ball is kicked, there is a transfer of energy from your leg to the ball. since the ball is elastic, it coverts the kinetic energy from your leg into potential elastic energy in the for of deformation of the ball. the ball then snaps back to its elastic equilibrium converting the energy back to kinetic energy. also, your momentum is being transferred to the ball, giving it a direction since momentum is a vector. due to these conversions of energy and momentum, the ball is sent off your foot in the direction you kicked it with the same speed you kicked it with.
