  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Penalty kick (football)
A penalty kick is a type of free kick in association football (soccer), taken from twelve yards (eleven metres) out from goal and with only the goalkeeper of the defending team between the penalty taker and the goal.
A penalty kick may be awarded when a defending player commits a foul punishable by a direct free kick (a so-called penal foul) against an opponent, within their own penalty area (commonly known as "the box", "18 yard box" or "16 metre box").
However, a penalty kick is unusual in that, unlike general play, external interference directly after the kick has been taken may result in the kick being retaken (rather than the usual dropped-ball).

Similar to the off-sides rule in soccer, a rugby player is off-side anytime that he or she is in front of his/her team-mate that has control of the ball or the team-mate that last played the ball.
This may be done by running or kicking the ball into the end zone and then touching the ball down for a score.
The kick is taken at any point straight out from the try zone where the ball was touched down.

 Penalty Kicks Memo from USSF
The International Board has reasoned that, since a penalty kick is awarded for a violation which otherwise would cause play to be restarted with a direct free kick, the team taking the kick should have at least some of the same latitude which is given for a direct free kick restart.
The kicker should also be considered guilty of misconduct if his behavior before actually kicking the ball results in unnecessary delay in restarting play (for example, by excessively changing direction during the run to the ball).
However, in situations where the manner of taking the kick is deemed unsporting but the referee is unable to stop play before the kick occurs, the referee must follow Law 14 by allowing the kick to proceed.

 Football (soccer) at AllExperts
Football is generally a free-flowing game, with play stopping only when the ball has left the field of play, or when play is stopped by the referee.
The rules of football as they are codified today are based on mid-19th century efforts to standardise the widely varying forms of football played at the public schools of England.
From the beginning of each playing period with a kick-off (a set kick from the centre-spot by one team) until the end of the playing period, the ball is in play at all times, except when either the ball leaves the field of play, or play is stopped by the referee.

FOOTBALL, AMERICAN, type of football that developed in the U.S. in the 19th century from association football, or soccer, and Rugby football (principally the latter).

Football, or soccer as it is sometimes know, is played on a field measuring 90 to 120 meters in length (100 to 110 m for international competition) and 45 to 90 meters in width (64 to 75 for international).
In these cases, a free kick is taken by the opposing team from the location of the offense, but this kick may not result in a goal before it is touched by another player.
This is taken from the penalty mark, and only the kicker and the keeper may be in the penalty area until the ball is kicked.

 England's Penalty Kick Shootout Matches
An extra tournament point was awarded for winning a penalty kick contest in matches drawn after 90 minutes, and penalty kick goals were included in the goals for and goals against columns in the tournament table, both measures taken to break deadlocks in the team standings.
For that reason, penalty kick shootout goals--unlike goals scored on penalty kicks proper, which are taken during match play--are not credited in the player's goalscoring record or in the match scoreline.
The penalty kick shootout actually determines not which team wins the match, but only which team advances to the next round of the tournament or, if the drawn match happens to be the final, which team wins the tournament.
