BBC Sport - World Cup 2014: 100 great World Cup moments - 70 days to go

World Cup moments: 'Karate kick'

BBC Sport counts down 100 of the greatest World Cup moments, as the 2014 tournament in Brazil draws nearer.

Today looks back to an infamous moment from the 2010 World Cup final, when Netherlands player Nigel de Jong is only shown a yellow card by referee Howard Webb for a chest-high kick at Spain's Xabi Alonso.

The tackle looked so bad that commentator Guy Mowbray called it a 'karate kick'.
