Ireland keeper sent off in U17 Euros shootout

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

In the pantheon of completely ridiculous, over-involved refereeing decisions, the one that essentially decided a UEFA U-17 European Championships semifinal between the Netherlands and Ireland on Monday night belongs pretty close to the top of the list.

The game was decided in freakish and controversial circumstances as Corcoran thought he had saved the Netherlands final penalty in the shoot-out, only for the referee to rule that he had advanced off his line too early, showing the goalkeeper a second yellow card and ordering the penalty to be re-taken.

A distraught Corcoran was in tears as he was forced to hand his goalkeeper shirt to defender Oisin McEntree.

With the shootout score at 4-4, Dutch captain Daishawn Redan stepped up to take his side's fifth penalty.

Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch reports that the series will arrive in 2019 and will have Jordan's involvement. But Michael Jordan's name still rings loud and clear as one of the most acclaimed of all time.

Ireland senior manager Martin O'Neill, who was there to watch the match with assistant Roy Keane, was seen running on the pitch to remonstrate with the referee.

Redan made no mistake with his second attempt, this time against McEntee, to send the Dutch through to the semi-finals after a game which had ended 1-1.

"I think he said something about coming off his line earlier, and he warned the Dutch keeper twice as well", Irish manager Colin O'Brien told Ireland broadcaster RTE.

Ireland levelled nearly immediately when a clever one-two between Troy Parrott and Jason Knight in the box resulting in the former sweeping home a superb shot.
