In today’s edition we are going to look at Law 17 of Football which is Corner-Kick.
• When the whole of the ball passes over the goal-line, excluding that portion between the goal-posts, either in the air or on the ground, having last been played by one of the defending team, a member of the attacking team shall take a corner kick.
• The whole of the ball shall be placed within the quarter circle at the nearest corner-flag post which must not be moved, and it shall be kicked from that position.
• A goal may be scored direct from such a kick players of the team opposing that of the player taking the corner-kick shall not approach within 10 yards of the ball until it is play.
If the player who takes the kick plays the ball a second time before it has been touched or played by another player, the referee shall award an indirect free-kick to the opposing team, to be taken from the place.
Where the infringement occurred, subject to the overriding conditions imposed in law for any other infringement the kick shall be retaken
