giving possession of the football to a Player on the occasions described in Law 15.
A kick, usually awarded for a minor penalty by the opponents. A direct attempt at goal may not be made from a free kick (unlike a penalty) until an opponent touches the ball, a tackle is made, or the ball has been made dead.
A kick given to the team that has suffered a foul at the spot of the infraction. The kicker is given a ten-yard buffer between the spot of the kick and the first opposing player. A free-kick is usually direct, meaning the kicker can score without the ball having to touch another player before it enters the goal. An indirect free-kick is used for minor fouls in or near the penalty area that require the ball to touch another player before crossing the goal-line.
