A direct free kick is a method of (re)starting play. One of its distinguishing characteristics is that a goal can be scored directly from this free kick. There are a few times when this (the direct free kick) happens, so let's look at each one. (Some direct free kicks are "specialized" kicks. But in all of the direct free kicks, the referee does not hold up his arm (as he does for an indirect free kick) and a goal can be scored from the direct free kick. A kick-off. At the start of each half (and any extra time intervals) and upon a goal by one team, the ball is placed on the centre mark and a kick-off is taken. It's a direct free kick. A goal can be scored from a kick-off. A corner kick. A corner kick is used to restart play after a defender has last touched a ball than then crossed wholely over the goal line but did not score a goal. The ball is spotted within the corner arc. It is a direct free kick and a goal can be scored from the corner. A penalty kick. It's as specialized a direct free kick as the game can permit. It is taken from the spot within the penalty area, and the player kicking the ball is going to try to put it directly in the net. A no brainer. A major foul by a defender in the penalty area can bring a penalty kick, and kicks from the mark to decide drawn games are taken as per the penalty kick (except that only one touch of the ball is played). A direct free kick awarded for a foul per Law 12. The ball is spotted at the point of the foul. If, in the opinion of the referee, a player commits a major foul during play as set down in Law 12, a direct free kick is used to restart play. (A foul like, say, pushing, during set up for a corner kick does not change the fact that the corner kick is to be taken to restart play. The referee may caution a player or even send a player off, but the corner is still the correct restart.) A goal kick. A goal kick is taken by the defending team after a ball last touched by the attacking team crosses wholely over the goal line but not into the goal. Any defender may take the goal kick and the ball is spotted anywhere within the goal box. A goal can be scored directly from the goal kick, but not against the team taking the kick.
