If there is a handball in the box is it a penalty kick or a free kick?

A penalty kick is awarded if the deliberate handling was by a defender in their own penalty area. A direct free kick is awarded if it was by an attacker.

What is the name of the direct free kick from 12 yards in front of the goal?

A direct free kick awarded from 12 yards in front of the goal would be within the penalty area. It would have to be a kick awarded to the defense, because if a defender had committed a direct free kick offense at that location the restart would, instead, have been a penalty kick for the attackers.


May an indirect free kick be awarded in the penalty area?

An indirect free kick may be awarded in the penalty area. It is not promoted to a penalty kick. If it is in the goal area, the kick location must be moved away from the goal line to the top of the goal area (6 yards out).

What is the penalty for touching the ball in soccer?

What I think you meant is, "what is the penalty for deliberately handling the ball?" If it is deemed to not be deliberate, then there is no offense. If a player deliberately handles the ball the other team is awarded a direct free kick at the location of the infraction. If it's done by a defender inside the defender's penalty area then a penalty kick would be awarded instead.


In football if a player takes the penalty kick but a team member enters the pits before the kick takes place what happens?

If the penalty was successful, then no goal is awarded and the kick is retaken. If the penalty was not successful, then no goal is awarded and an indirect free kick is awarded to the defense. They will not get a 2nd shot at the goal because their own player infringed.


Can a player be fouled inside the penalty box and not be awarded a penalty?

"Foul" is a term used to describe an offence punishable by a direct free kick. If a defender fouls an attacker in the defender's penalty area then a penalty kick is the prescribed restart. There's a loophole in your question. What if the attacker fouls the defender in the defender's penalty area? A direct free kick is awarded to the defense.
