Keeper sent off after game winning penalty save

Keeper sent off after game winning penalty save

Nearly everyone in the country will have heard the name Jimmy Corcoran after tonight's sensational UEFA u-17 Championship penalty shoot-out as the Republic of Ireland exited the competition in hugely controversial circumstances in Chesterfield.

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.

Defender Oisin McEntee went in goal for the retake which Redan scored, sending his side through.

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

But his moment of joy suddenly turned to shock as he received a second yellow card for a supposed infraction.

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.

Ireland goalkeeper Jimmy Corcoran then made a simply superb diving stop to deny Iwan Redan's effort, and thus set up a potential winning kick for his country.

Ireland boss Colin O'Brien claims the referee had twice warned the Dutch keeper for moving off the line early without taking action, before carding Corcoran.

However, replays showed that Corcoran's forward movement was minimal and the teenager was left inconsolable by the decision.

The boys in green drew 1-1 with the Netherlands in regulation time, with a penalty shootout soon following. This is football and that's why we play sport; for the ups and downs.
