Remarkable controversy as Republic of Ireland U17s knocked out of Euros

Ref justice in Euro shoot-out! Controversial red card for Preston 'keeper as Republic of Ireland's Under 17s exit European Championships

Martin O'Neill led the protests after the Republic of Ireland were knocked out of the Under 17 European Championships in controversial circumstances by the Netherlands in Chesterfield on Monday night. Corcoran saved Redan's spot kick and looked to have kept the Irish hopes alive.

However, referee Zbynek Proske showed the shot-stopper his second yellow as an understandably distraught Corcoran dropped to the floor in reaction to the decision.

One of the most highly controversial moments in Irish football occurred when a shockingly freakish refereeing decision ordered a Dutch penalty to be retaken, sent off the Irish keeper, and put an end to the Boys In Green's European championships in one fell swoop.

Instead, Proske gave the Cherry Orchard keeper a second yellow for encroaching from his line. Corcoran had already been booked for time-wasting in normal time, so he was shown a red card.

With substitutions during a shootout not permitted, centre half Oisin McEntee went into goals and was beaten by Chelsea's Daishawn Redan.

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.

Ireland senior team boss Martin O'Neill, who had been watching in the stands with his no. 2 Roy Keane, was livid by the decision and confronted the ref on the pitch.

"We were outraged with the way (the referee) treated a very young player. It still is the moment of his career so far but just for the wrong reasons unfortunately".
