Real Madrid's Vinicius Junior Attempts Rainbow Flick, Goes Horribly Wrong

Vinicius Junior is a serious talent. But his rainbow flick needs working on.

The Brazilian wonderkid got on the score-sheet as Real Madrid easily dispatched Spanish minnows Melilla in the Copa del Rey.

But no one is talking about his goal in Real Madrid's 6-1 victory.

Instead, his failed attempt at a outrageous piece of skill.

In the second-half, with his side 4-0 up on the night, the 18-year-old tried to do his best Neymar impression.

However, he got his rainbow flick horribly wrong, sending the ball in to the opposite direction of his run in embarrassing scenes.

Oops. A moment he'll want to forget.

His international compatriot, Neymar, produced the aforementioned trick in stunning fashion against Liverpool in the Champions League not long ago.

With minutes left of PSG's European fixture, Neymar ruined Xherdan Shaqiri in ridiculous fashion.

He may have lost the ball but it was still a naughty, naughty piece of skill.
