What's the rules for these unsuccessful goal kicks?

Post by frozzgoal »

I wanna know what the Refs decision is in the following scenarios.
1,The goalkeeper attempts to take a goal kick but only manages to clip it and the ball rebounds off him back into his goal.
2,The goalkeeper attempts to take a goal kick but only manages to nudge it a metre along his goal line. The goalie then dives onto the ball and grabs it.

Thanks for your replies.

1. If the goal kick goes into the goal without touching another player then it is a corner. If it rebounds of him (not sure how that's possilbe but if he touches it a second time before it leaves the box it is retaken. If he touches it a second time before anyone else after leaving the box then it is an indirect free kick to the opposition.

2. It gets retaken as sort of explained above.

1. The keeper gets signed up Cirque de Soleil for showing such amazing dexterity, whilst the ref gives a corner.

2. He gets dropped next week (and probably subbed immediately) for being completely and utterly uncoordinated and the ref gives another goal kick.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

Maybe Liverpool should look to sign him up for 2018/19 :D
