Martin O'Neill confronts referee following Ireland U17 penalty controversy

Martin O'Neill confronts referee following Ireland U17 penalty controversy

The Republic of Ireland's Jimmy Corcoran reacts after his sending off during the European U17s quarter-final in Chesterfield.

Ireland goalkeeper James Corcorcan looked like the hero of the night after saving Daishawn Redan's penalty, but what followed was completely unexpected.

Dutch captain Redan stepped up to score the retaken penalty to send his side through to the semi-finals with Corcoran comforted by team-mates as he broke down in tears.

However, the referee deemed Corcoran to have moved off his line before the ball was struck and he ordered the penalty to be retaken.

Worse still, the ref then brandished a yellow card in the direction of the perplexed keeper, which turned out to be his second of the game, leaving him crestfallen on the floor with his head in his hands.

He did so in spectacular fashion, but was immediately brought back to Earth with a bang, receiving a second yellow card for moving off the line too early per the referee's decision.

The boys in green drew 1-1 with the Netherlands in regulation time, with a penalty shootout soon following.

Martin O'Neill confronted Czech referee Zbynek Proske after the game while Eamon Dunphy labelled the official "out of his depth" in his Irish Daily Star column on Tuesday.

"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. It still is the moment of his career so far but just for the wrong reasons unfortunately".
