The white-dressed defending player goes into a challenge and comes too late. With the ball already away, he makes intentional and unfair contact with the opponent's foot by using his studs coming from the top, showing little interest in the welfare of his opponent.
While the defender's action might be interpreted as serious foul play, as such tackles have the potential to endanger the safety of an opponent if they e.g. touch their shinbones or ankles, tackles of this specific type are rather low and "only" have a moderate intensity. Therefore they should be considered as reckless.
