After recovering relatively unscathed, Bailly worried the medical staff with ANOTHER hit just four minutes later at Wembley.
With 43 minutes gone, Bailly smacked into his own team-mate, Harry Maguire, as both players challenged for the same ball.
Captain Maguire was left with blood on his face and was eventually bandaged up.
But the Ivorian came off much worse suffering a possible concussion.

During an eight-minute delay, Bailly attempted to get back on his feet and trudge off towards the dressing room, covered in blood.
But moments later he was back on the floor again, with United medics taking no chances.
The centre-back was placed on a stretcher and taken off in a neck brace.
He was replaced by Anthony Martial as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tweaked his 3-4-3 formation.
Moments later, Martial appeared to be sporting a knock, as he was moving gingerly after Zouma scraped his foot with his studs.
United’s penalty appeal was denied, with Chelsea going up the other end and taking the lead through Olivier Giroud.
