Former goalkeeper in birthday party

One of the most important and unique remits of the goalkeeping role is that players in this position can use their hands. While outfield players will be penalized (and the opposing team awarded a foul) for handling the ball, goalkeepers rely on the use of their hands massively. That being said, this handling advantage is only applicable inside a goalkeeper’s penalty area. Once they stray outside their box, the handball laws apply to them too.
