The most common penalty in soccer is called a foul and is awarded when someone tackles another player without the intent of getting the ball. This is a judgment call by the referee and is penalised by a " Free kick". A free kick is what it says a free kick the ball is placed at the spot of the foul and no player from the opposing team is allowed to be within ten yards of the ball until the free kick is taken. There are also two kinds of free kicks, a direct and an indirect free kick. This is decided again by the referee and usually depends on where the foul took place on the field and whether the player that was fouled was in a position to attack the goal
