European Under-17 Championship: Red-card drama as Republic exit on penalties

Martin O'Neill confronts referee after Ireland U17 goalkeeper sent off in penalty shootout

The Republic of Ireland have been knocked out of the European Under-17 Championships in contraversial circumstances following a penalty shoot-out with the Netherlands.

Corcoran pulled off an impressive save to keep Holland's fifth and decisive spot-kick from Daishawn Redan out and to seemingly keep his side's hopes alive.

But his moment of joy suddenly turned to shock as he received a second yellow card for a supposed infraction. Worse, it may look like Corcoran left his line in real time, but replays actually show that the referee got it wrong.

Troy Parrott, the in-form Irish forward, had earlier cancelled out Liam van Gelderen's 62nd-minute opener to take the game to penalties, with Chelsea's Redan afforded the chance to score the winning kick for the Dutch.

Corcoran was understandably distraught after being dismissed. It was Corcoran's second yellow, so he was sent off and Redan scored the re-take past centre back Oisin McEntee.

The teams were forced to decide the match by a penalty shootout after the match had ended 1-1.

Ireland U17 manager Colin O'Brien said that the referee had warned the Dutch goalkeeper twice previously for moving before the whistle had been blown during the shootout.

Irish officials remonstrated with the referee after the final whistle with even senior Irish manager Martin O'Neill marching onto the pitch to confront the referee.

"It was obvious the consequences of what was after happening, this was a 16-year-old, obviously he was my son but for any child to have to go through that I thought was very harsh".
