Vinicius Jr. became famous following a daring display of skill that embarrassed Argentina’s right-back Molina.
Vinicius found himself near the corner flag with little room to manoeuvre midway through the second half.
With Molina closing in on him, Vinicius masterfully lifted the ball above his opponent’s head with a flawless rainbow flip.

At the Estadio San Juan del Bicentenario in Argentina, the two South American nations drew 0-0.
Despite this, Argentina was able to secure a spot in next year’s World Cup in Qatar, despite Uruguay and Chile both losing their respective qualifications.
After overcoming Colombia last week, Brazil became the first South American country to qualify for the World Cup finals next winter.
Lionel Messi and his teammates will now join the five-time world champions in the event.
Di María completed the perfect nutmeg on Vinicius Jr earlier in the game and Vini responded with a perfect rainbow flick. 💫— Shadrack Musembi© (@Shaddymusembi1) November 17, 2021
