Ireland U17 goalkeeper gets sent off... during a penalty shootout

The Republic of Ireland were made pay for the sins of the opposition according to Colin O'Brien as the Under 17s made a cruel exit at the quarter final stage of the European Championships.

The referee felt Corcoran had moved off his line before the kick was taken and gave the goalkeeper a second yellow card.

Corcoran was understandably distraught after being dismissed. The resulting finale was pretty much a disgrace; Corcoran was forced to hand his Irish jersey and gloves to teammate Oisín McEntee - a central defender who is not a goalkeeper - and despite his best efforts, Redan scored easily to book the Oranje's place in the tournament semifinals.

Ireland's number one guessed correctly to deny Daishawn Redan a winning goal from 12 yards with the score at 4-4 in the shootout.

The father of the Republic of Ireland U17 player at the centre of the penalty shootout controversy says his son endured a sleepless night.

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.
