The goalkeeper stay near of the goal line, penalty spot, six yard box and the own goal. The centre-backs generally stay on penalty area at your halfway-line. The full-backs and the wings stay near at touch line together with midfielders. The strikers stay near the penalty area's opponent. I've writed all right ?

Some commentators use the word 'woodwork'. Are there any specific cases when we should use only the word 'goal' or 'woodwork'? Or they are interchangeable?

The term 'woodwork' is used for the whole frame of the goal, so the ball could hit either post or the crossbar and the commentator could say 'woodwork'. I suppose the frame of the goal used to be made of wood, but I'm pretty sure that this hasn't been the case for some time. We don't really say 'goal' when the ball hits the post or the crossbar - however, we can say the goalkeeper plays 'in goal'.
