When Soccer Meets Mortal Kombat

The kung-fu kick continues to plague soccer pitches everywhere.  Ever since Holland’s Nigel De Jong was seen delivering a flying kick to the chest of Spain’s Xabi Alonso during the World Cup finals, several footballers around the world have decided to replicate this maneuver, and have done so with great success.

I can’t help but conjure up memories of my Mortal Kombat days every time I see this footballer go flying through the air.
