No details on this video — no date, season, city, etc. — except that J.D. has the ball and the crowd is cheering him on. Then he gets cold-cock sucker-punched by the defender and goes down like... well, an 8-year-old who just got jacked in the face.

For once, a soccer player goes down and it's not a dive.

Violence in soccer: Not just for South America and Europe.
