Holland midfielder Demy de Zeeuw could be ruled out of the World Cup final after sustaining a suspected broken jaw in the semi-final victory over Uruguay.

The Ajax player started the 3-2 win over Oscar Tabarez's South Americans due to the suspension of Manchester City's Nigel de Jong.

But De Zeeuw was substituted at half-time after taking a horrible, but accidental, boot to the face from Uruguay defender Martin Caceres in the first 45 minutes.

The 27-year-old underwent medical attention on the pitch amid concerns he had been knocked unconscious by Caceres' challenge, which left the Holland players less than impressed and a minor scuffle broke out.

Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk, who has guided the Dutch to a first World Cup final since 1978, has since told reporters that De Zeeuw is undergoing X-rays in hospital.

If results confirm a broken bone then De Zeeuw will be ruled out of Sunday's final against Spain or Germany, who meet in the other semi-final on Wednesday.
