Rainbow kick

The association football rainbow kick (also called the reverse flick-over, the rainbow flick US, the Carretilha or the Lambreta Brazil as well as in Italy the Lambretta, the Ardiles flick UK, arco iris Spain, the Okocha-Trick in Germany and coup du sombrero in France) and the Djalminha at MN5 is a trick used in association football, in which a player steps to the side of the ball and flicks it up round from the side of them. The trajectory of the ball gives this trick its name. The trick is usually performed while running forward with the ball, and is done by rolling the ball up the back of one leg with the other foot, before flicking the standing foot upwards to propel the ball forward and over the head.
