Ireland U17 GK sent off DURING penalty shoot-out

Ireland's captain Nathan Collins showed remarkable maturity in the wake of Monday's controversial Euro Under-17 quarter-final elimination by the Netherlands.

Ireland centre-back Oisin McEntee was then forced to take over in between the sticks, but was unable to save Redan's retaken spot-kick, which was sacked into exactly the same spot as before, except this time it hit the back of the net as the Netherlands progressed through to the semi-finals of the competition.

While Corcoran denied Redan, referee Proske deemed the goalkeeper to have moved off his line in advance of the shot and surprisingly issued the... Corcoran had already been booked for time-wasting in normal time, so he was shown a red card.

Corcoran was understandably distraught after being dismissed.

Centre-back Oisin McEntee then stepped in between the posts but the retaken penalty was coolly converted.

If Daishawn Redan scored, the Netherlands were through.

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.

Ireland went out after a penalty shoot-out, with referee Zbynek Proske sending off Ireland keeper Jimmy Corcoran after he appeared to have saved the final Dutch penalty with the scores standing at 4-4.

"We were outraged with the way (the referee) treated a very young player".

When asked how Jimmy was doing the morning after the night before, Noel said: "He slept a little bit but he's not feeling a whole lot better but time will fix that".
