How does a penalty or foul happen in soccer?

A foul is any action forbidden by Law 12, Fouls and Misconduct. This includes striking or attempting to strike an opponent, tripping or attempting to trip an opponent, kicking or attempting to kick an opponent, jumping at an opponent, charging an opponent, spitting at an opponent or other person, holding an opponent or handling the ball. If any of these offenses are committed by the attacking team within the defending team's penalty area, the foul becomes a penalty kick. Other infractions, such as impeding the progress of an opponent, offside, and playing in a dangerous manner are not strictly fouls, but still carry penalties (not penalty kicks) of their own.
