In soccer, a direct free kick is a restart awarded by the referee after a foul has occurred. The ball is placed on the ground at the spot of the foul, and the kicking team may kick it, at which time the ball is in play. All defenders must remain at least 10 yards from the ball until it is kicked and moves.
