A goal may be scored directly from a penalty kick.

Additional time is allowed for a penalty kick to be taken at the end of each half or at the end of each period of extra time.

The players other than the kicker must be located: • on the pitch • outside the penalty area • behind the penalty mark • at least 5m from the penalty mark

Procedure

• After the players have taken positions in accordance with this Law, one of the referees signals for the penalty kick to be taken • The player taking the penalty kick must kick the ball forward • The ball is in play when it is kicked and moves forward

When a penalty kick is taken during the normal course of play, or time has been extended at half-time or full time or at the end of a period of extra time, if any, to allow a penalty kick to be taken or retaken, a goal is awarded if, before passing between the goalposts and under the crossbar: • the ball touches either or both goalposts and/or the crossbar and/or the goalkeeper
The referees decide when a penalty kick has been completed.
