Best Answer

No. If the last player to touch the ball was a member of the same team as the goalie, s/he can only handle it like any other player (use chest, legs, head, etc.). The goalie can also not pick up the ball anywhere outside the 18-yard box.

Goalies can be involved in attacking elements of a game, but outside their own box they have to behave as any other player. For instance, if a goalie goes to the other team's box to be a part of a corner kick, s/he could only head or kick the ball in, not punch it in or in anyway touch it with his or her hands. Obviously, having a goalie leave their own box is risky, especially since many goalies are uncomfortable playing the ball with their feet (at least compared to outfield players).
