fantasista
 n.— «Italy’s football jargon has a special term: “fantasista,” to sum up the qualities of players like Francesco Totti. It takes lots of inventiveness and class to be classified a fantasista—a player who can stun the opponents with a defence-splitting pass, an exquisite lob, or a sublime piece of skill.» —“11 Days to go” Indian Express (Bombay) June 1, 2004.
