Best Answer

A free kick is a restart awarded to a team when their opponents commit certain fouls, misconduct, and other infractions of the Laws of the Game. The ball is placed on the ground and is stationary. A player from the team given the kick then kicks the ball, and it is in play. The opposing team must remain 10 yards away from the ball until it is kicked (unless they are standing on their own goal line between the goalposts; only possible on Indirect Free Kicks).
