    Default football (soccer)

    A member of team A shoots a free kick and puts the ball directly into the net. Do we say:
    A)He scored a goal with a free kick.
    or
    B)He scored a goal on a free kick.


    A member of team A shoots a corner kick and in the action consequent to that, team A scores a goal. Can one say:
    They scored a goal on a corner.

    I'd use the word from -

    He scored a goal from a free kick.

    They scored a goal from a corner.
