Reasons to give indirect free kicks are given for various reasons, not all to do with goalkeeper infractions. But on the edge of the six-yard box like that, it probably was the goalkeeper.I amd itn ecaptiaghle of drinking sthis d dar - Dr T
Or is the goal to try to kick the ball way over the top? I guess that would make just about as much sense.

It's generally harder to score from those situations than it is from a free kick twenty-two yards out; Alan Shearer notwithstanding. I once saw an attacking team start arguing with the officials because they had a free kick about twenty-eight yards out; one of the defending team then got verbal with the referee so he moved the ball ten yards further up as "punishment" but actually made it less easy to score. Unlike rugby / US Football, getting closer to the goal line isn't the point of the game and can make the job trickier.
I don't see it as any surprize that a bunch of yellow short people enjoy a game for pussies and Europeans.
Geez, that's a racist comment.
