The Side Slap
Around the Academy:

This is one that you don't see often.

The Academy's good friends at Xchange teamed up with football trickster Colin Nell to gain some tips on the type of tricks we're looking for.

Watch the Side Slap trick:

This is one that you don't see often.

The key to this one is kicking the ball up, use the opposite foot to step over the ball then use the original kicking foot to slap the ball back down ready to catch it.

Forget to do your homework? Show this one to your teacher and they won't even care.
