A penalty kick is awarded when a player commits a foul in the penalty box which is clearly visible on the field. The penalty is given to the team against who the foul was commited and a player from that team then takes a kick from the penalty spot.

Penalties are rewarded to a team during the end of a game on a knockout round of a tournament. (World Cup, Champions League) Or during a foul in the goalkeeper box.

there will be five penalties for each team when the game becomes a draw in knockout stages. penalties are also given when a player is fouled inside the penalty box. it can be a hand too.

The penalty kick taker may move the ball with his hands up until the referee blows his whistle. After the referee has blown the whistle the penatly taker is free to kick the ball when he desires. As soon as the player has kicked the ball then the rest of the players are allowed to try and gain possession of the ball. From a goalkeeper's view, he may only move off his line once the ball has been kicked, but can move sideways along the line before the ball is kicked. If the goalkeeper does move before the penalty has been taken then the referee will ask for the ball to re-placed onto the spot and the process then starts again.

When will the referee rule a re punt?

The referee in football doesn't rule the re-kick rather the team that reaps the benefit of a penalty and chooses to re-kick. For instance; if a punt only goes 20 yards on a 4th and 12 punt and the defense was offsides; the referee just calls the penalty; the kicking team selects to enforce the penalty or re-kick. My answer - a referee seldom rules a punt to be rekicked. The kicking team will have that luxury ONLY if a penalty flag was thrown and in their favour.

If an attacker runs with the ball into his opponents penalty area the ball runs out of play as he is fouled by a defender as the ball was out of play should the referee award a penalty?

The referee must decide whether the ball exited the field before or after the foul.If the foul happened first, then a penalty kick would be awarded.If the ball exited the field first, then a goal kick or corner kick is awarded depending on who touched it last. It cannotbe a foul, as the ball was already out of play. It could be misconduct depending on the severity.

Is penalty kick awarded even when the player unintentionally handle the ball?

This issue revolves solely around the opinion of the referee, if he believes the ball 'hit the players hand' instead of an intentional act he will not award a penalty. Usually if the player turns their back or the ball hits their hand when they try to protect themselves, a penalty will not be awarded.

In soccer penalty kicks if the player kicks the ball before the referee blows the whisle what happens?

It all depends on the referee on the day. One thing for certain is, the penalty must be retaken, and the player who took the penalty may get a yellow card. It is however very unlikely a player will take a penalty before the whistle. It is more common in free kicks. If a free kick is taken before the whistle is blown the free kick must be retaken and again the player may get a yellow card. You will notice before a free kick or penalty the referee will hold up his whistle and show it to the players and say wait for my whistle.

If an attacker [only] infringes the referee will wait for the result of the penalty kick. If the kick enters the goal, a rekick will be awarded. If the kick does not enter the goal, the restart will be an indirect free kick for the defense at the location where the player entered.
