The goal area is 6 yards deep and 20 yards wide.
1. During the taking of a goal kick, the ball may be placed anywhere in this area.
2. During the taking of any free kick (direct or indirect), the ball is moved away from the goal line along a line perpendicular to the goal line to the top of this area; exactly 6 yards out. This is to prevent, for example, an indirect free kick 6 inches from the goal line. It would also give some running room for a defensive free kick going out.
It has to be the penalty.
The box outside each end zone is actually a marking for a soccer field. (18 yard Box). generally it is a multi-purpose field.
probably the 18 yard box all the way to the end line
You can also shoot inside the 18 yard box.
It is the smallest box on each end of the field next to the goal. In addition, it is sometimes called the "six yard box" because from the goal line to the top of the goal box, the measurement is 6 yards.

A bad aspect for a pro soccer player could be committing a foul inside the 18-yard box, or possibly scoring in your own goal on a corner kick.

Fifty yards. It extends from 25-yard line to 25-yard line. (NCAA Rules and Interpretations: Rule 1.2.4a)
At both ends of the field is a set of goalposts with a net. The 2 corners have quadrants for corner kicks. In front of the goal is the six-yard box for goal kicks. Next comes the penalty spot for penalty kicks. Then comes the penalty box which is the area where a penalty can be given for a foul. Just at the edge of the penalty box is a semi circle which indicates the minimum distance of the rest of the players to the penalty taker. Along the whole length of the field and on either side are the sidelines for throw-ins. Injured players also have to re-enter the pitch from outside the sidelines near the middle. At the middle of the field is the kick-off spot, for kick-offs. Around the spot is a large circle split in the centre by the half line. The circle is to indicate the minimum distance between the players who are kicking-off and the the rest of the players. The half line indicates the maximum proximity to the opponent's goal that a player can be at at kick-off. That is all there is to a soccer field's anatomy.
