After a foul, a team is awarded a free kick, in most cases, a direct free kick. A direct kick can result in a goal; a player can use the kick to take a shot directly on the goal and score. See: free kick.
A free kick on which the kicker can score directly. The ball does not need to touch another player before entering the goal, or if it does touch another player that counts too.
A free kick that can be scored directly from the spot of the kick.
A free kick that can be scored on without another player touching the ball.
A free kick awarded when a player kicks, trips, charges, jumps at, strikes or holds an opponent or handles the ball with his hand. The defending team must stand at least 10 yards away from the ball before the kick. The kick is taken from the point of the infraction, and the designated player taking the kick may score directly without another player having to touch the ball.
