World Cup 2010, Brazil Vs. Netherlands: Nigel De Jong Yellow Card To Earn Midfielder Suspension

Nigel De Jong has earned a yellow card in the 64th minute of the Netherlands' match with Brazil, earning the midfielder a one match suspension.

Yellow cards, for the purpose of accumulation suspensions, are reset after the quarterfinals, but having carried a car into today's match, De Jong earned a suspension when he was booked for grabbing Robinho.

De Jong will miss either the World Cup semifinal or the Netherlands' first match of qualifying for the 2012 European Championships.

The Netherland's match with Brazil is tied 1-1 in the 68th minute.
