Ireland U17 GK sent off DURING penalty shoot-out

Ireland U17 GK sent off DURING penalty shoot-out

There was anger in the Irish camp post-match with Republic of Ireland senior coach Martin O'Neill confronting referee Zbynek Proske.

Per UEFA rules, a team is not allowed to substitute their goalkeeper, preventing Ireland from introducing Sean Bohan, and instead defender Oisín McEntee went in goal.

The penalty was ordered to be retaken, but before it was, Corcocan was sent off.

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. Corcorcan had already been booked, so he was sent off. It's certainly not something you see every day.

An F1 tornado hit Charlestown, Langdon and South Acworth on May 4, the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, determined Monday. Washington and many surrounding areas have received over two inches of rain in the past few days, and soil is becoming saturated.

Troy Parrott, the in-form Irish forward, had earlier cancelled out Liam van Gelderen's 62nd-minute opener to take the game to penalties, with Chelsea's Redan afforded the chance to score the winning kick for the Dutch.

A video from RTÉ has highlighted that the Dutch keeper Koorevaar also appeared to be off his line (as most keepers generally are) when he saved Adam Idah's penalty.

As the Dutch wheeled away in triumph after a 5-4 victory on penalties following a 1-1 draw at the end of the game, Corcoran broke down in tears and was comforted by his team-mates. Ireland's lads can hold their heads high after that performance.
