Following his notorious high tackle on Xabi Alonso during the 2012 World Cup final for Holland as they faced eventual winners Spain in Johannesburg, De Jong struck again on Sunday.

The incident occurred as Portland Timbers were the visitors to play LA Galaxy in the fifth week of the 2016 MLS season.

Timbers midfielder Nagbe was on the wrong end as De Jong launched a late tackle which left the recent US international unable to walk and needed to leave the pitch on a wheelchair.
