Rainbow Kick

The term “rainbow kick”, also known as the “reserve flick-over”, the “rainbow flick” and the Lambretta, is a footballing trick that involves a footballer stepping over the ball and flicking it off the ground from behind him and then moving it forward over his head in an arc. The trajectory of the ball is a rainbow-shaped arc and that is how the name of the trick has come to be. The trick is usually pulled off by the player while he is running forward with the ball and performs the trick by rolling the ball up the back of one leg with the other foot, before flicking the standing foot upwards to move the ball forward and over the head. This is said to be one of the most difficult and hugely aesthetic football tricks.
