Aging starter. Not neccesarily a bad starter. Since the starter is right next to the exhaust it gets hot enough for your old contact bushings on the starter motor to sieze to the motor itself keeping it from turning over. Usually after the car sits and cools it will start just fine. Instead of jumping it with a screw driver a more than gentle hit with a mallet or hammer will jar the bushings loose so the car will start. when the starters get older heat will cause them to not start when the starter motor gets warm from the engine could always change the starter and put a heat wrap around it to prevent it from happening again later on down the road

What happens when the defence kicks the ball over there own goal line?

If it does so between the goal posts and under the crossbar, then it is a goal for the attacking team and the restart is a kick off for the defense; assuming the defense was not performing a restart (goal kick, direct free kick, indirect free kick, etc). If it exits the field across the goal line elsewhere then the restart is a corner kick for the attacking team.
