Best Answer

There are specific infractions that determine whether a free kick is direct or indirect. The referee is not (should not be) just making it up.

A direct free kick may directly score a goal.

An indirect free kick must touch one other player before a goal may be scored.

How do I tell?

Watch the referee while waiting for the kick to be taken.
