|Let’s learn how to do Neymar rainbow flick. With the soccer ball between your legs, roll the ball up one of your legs and then flicks the ball with the heel area of the other foot up and over your head. This is a juggle skill usually just for training sessions but Neymar often does this rainbow flick in actual games. Most defenders aren’t pleased when Neymar pulls off or even tries the rainbow flick on them.
Neymar pulls off a rainbow flick but gets fouled in the process. Watch how Neymar flicks the ball up and over the defenders’ head but gets pushed down when the defender realizes he’s beaten. Tough to face off against Neymar when he’s got the soccer ball at his feet, you’re bound to get embarrassed when you close him down, especially if he decides to try a rainbow flick.
Neymar has gotten in some trouble for pulling a rainbow flick off at the end of games, even doing it while playing for Barcelona. It’s maybe not a move you want to do when your team is winning and there are only a few minutes left. However, if you have skill like this, as Neymar does, why not use it in a game.
Sometimes the defender gets a bit upset when Neymar pulls off the Neymar flick against them….as you can imagine. I go back and forth on this though, whether or not Neymar should do this in a game or not.
Overall, if Neymar is actually using the flick to get away from a defender when he really doesn’t have too many other options, then I saw do it. Again, if his team is winning by a wide margin, and it’s towards the end of game, then Neymar can maybe skip doing this trick move.
But soccer is supposed to be a fun game, the beautiful game, so you want players like Neymar to try things and get creative.
