VIDEO: Brand new Brazuca ball gets its first workout from KICKTV's trick shot specialist | SIDELINE

KICKTV and its on-staff Finnish trick-shot goalkeeper got a hold of one of the brand Brazuca soccer balls last week as part of the the MLS Cup festivities in Kansas City. They politely showed the ball around town, and gave it a few kicks to try it out.

First things first, the most important thing to note from the above statement is that KICKTV has its very own Finnish trick-shot goalkeeper. As any self-respecting soccer video network would, right?

Anyway, the video gives a quick look to how the Brazuca moves in mid-flight, whether it knuckles all over the place like the Jabulani of 2010, as well as how a life-long goalkeeper feels about the ball.

The Brazuca, which will debut in Major League Soccer starting in March and at next summer's World Cup in Brazil, was unveiled by adidas last week during the buildup to the FIFA World Cup group-stage draw.
