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 Controversial red card for Preston 'keeper as Republic of Ireland's Under 17s exit European Championships

Cape Town - Ireland were knocked out in freakish fashion at the Under-17 European Championship by Holland after goalkeeper Jimmy Corcoran was sent off during a penalty shoot-out for encroachment.

The peno was re-taken with Ireland defender Oisin McEntee taking the goalkeeping jersey but Redan made no mistake on the second attempt and Ireland exit the Championship in extremely disappointing circumstances.

Was it a yellow card for the Irish keeper?

The replay shows minimal movement from Corcoran, who appears to take several quick steps sideways to his right around the time Redan strikes the ball and seemingly moves only after the ball is kicked.

Corcoran was understandably distraught after being dismissed.

Foundation quits Hungary over 'repressive' policies — George Soros
Rights groups in Hungary and overseas have denounced the proposals as a way of cracking down on groups critical of the government. OSF said the move follows steps by Orban to "impose further restrictions" on non-governmental organizations.

The game had finished 1-1 after 120 minutes of action and the save for which Corcoran was punished would have denied Redan a winning goal and provided the Irish with a lifeline.

The junior side had their goalkeeper Jimmy Corcoran sent off during the shoot-out after he made the save to send it to sudden-death penalties.

Manager of the Republic of Ireland senior team Martin O'Neill was on the pitch after the Netherlands controversially saw off Ireland on penalties to leave our Euro hopes in the dust.

"We were outraged with the way (the referee) treated a very young player". The second is that the level of maturity shown by the former Douglas Community School striker makes us all the more confident that Idah has the ability and mentality to bounce back and continue his domineering ascension to football's top ranks.
