Back-heel unhinges Brugge

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's subtlety sends AFC Ajax on their way against Club Brugge KV.
The subtlest of touches gets AFC Ajax off and running in their UEFA Champions League game against Club Brugge KV last week.

Astute back-heel
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the man who does the damage. An astute back-heel sends Wesley Sonck away, and the Belgian striker puts Ajax ahead and on their way to a 2-0 success.

Close contention
Back-heels like this can unhinge any defence. A few more of these, and Ajax could be challenging again for the trophy that they made their own for a three-year spell in the early 1970s.
