Best Answer

During any goal kick the ball must be placed somewhere within the goal area.

Any offense for which the restart is a direct or indirect free kick, then the ball is placed at the top of the goal area (6 yards from goal line) directly out from where the offense occurred. Please note that a penalty kick is an entirely different restart from direct or indirect free kicks.

There is a persistent myth about a rule where attackers cannot enter the goal area during active play. It is untrue. Obviously, there are some restrictions during penalty kicks or kicks from the mark.
