Trick of the week: Heel juggle

There's nothing spectacular about a straightforward back-heel. Players of varying ability can execute this simple, yet classic expression of joga bonito.

But taking it to the next level and juggling the ball with your heel sorts the freestylers from the 'ave it' merchants.

Who better to teach you this trick than the man who holds the world record for completed heel juggles in one minute? (133 to be exact).
