Refereeing decision robs Ireland under 17's in the European Championship

Ref justice in Euro shoot-out! Martin O'Neill confronts referee after Ireland U17 goalkeeper sent off in penalty shootout

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.

The Meath teenager, who will be eligible for the u-17 grade again next year (2019) when the tournament is hosted in Ireland, wasn't even the first choice goalkeeper when the tournament began last week.

The quarter-final against the Netherlands ended in freaky circumstances as Corcoran was shown a second yellow card for coming off his line before saving a spot-kick.

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.

The complication here is that referees should probably be more vigilant in this situation.

Video goes viral after son 'crashes' marriage proposal

Indeed, former Liverpool defender John Arne Riise took to Twitter to write: "He should be banned for a long time!"

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

And he's not the only one who is unhappy with the official.

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.

"However let's use a little bit of common sense in this situation, referee went looking for trouble he should have just played on no one would have said anything". But the roar coming out of the dressing room when Jimmy Corcoran saved the spot kick nearly sent the clubhouse roof into orbit!
