Indirect free-kicks must involve at least two players
With an indirect free-kick, you obviously have to pass before you can shoot.
But when are these free-kicks awarded?
When, in the opinion of the ref, a player:
Impedes the progression of an opponent (obstruction)
Plays in a dangerous manner
Prevents the goalkeeper from releasing the ball from his hands
Or when a keeper, inside their own penalty area:
Holds on to the ball for more than six seconds
Handles a back pass
Handles the ball after receiving it from a team-mate direct from a throw-in
Touches the ball again with their hands, before it is touched by another player, after releasing it from their possession
