Can a goalkeeper touch the ball after he kicks it -the ball only goes a few feet away from him-and before another player touches it?

How did he kick the ball the first time? Did he have possession with his hands before the kick? (e.g. a punt) If not a punt, and he is just kicking the ball, how did he receive the ball in the first place? Did he receive it directly from a team-mate throw-in or pass with the feet? There is really not enough information in the question to give an answer.
