It is awarded when a player from the attacking team causes the ball to cross the goal line and a goal is not awarded (for example, because the ball went wide of the goal, or a the ball crossed to goal line as a result of an indirect free-kick).

Technically a hoof is not compulsory, but the fast majority of goal-kicks are hoofed upfield.
