Controversial red card for Preston 'keeper as Republic of Ireland's Under 17s exit European Championships

Martin O'Neill confronts referee after Ireland U17 goalkeeper sent off in penalty shootout

Despite not hitting the net, it was one of the best performances of Idah's young career, displaying his ability to act as an outlet for the Irish, as opposed to his usual role as a goalscoring threat.

Proske showed Corcoran his second yellow card for coming off his line before Daishawn Redan took his spot-kick, the first for time-wasting in normal time.

Worse still, the ref then brandished a yellow card in the direction of the perplexed keeper, which turned out to be his second of the game, leaving him crestfallen on the floor with his head in his hands.

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

In case you missed it, the Irish were dumped out of the youth tournament in truly controversial circumstances, with the referee actually sending off goalkeeper Jimmy Corcoran during the penalty shootout.

Last night, it all culminated with a penalty shoot out against the Netherlands for a spot in the semi finals of the Euros.

FORMER Celtic manager Martin O'Neill was left furious after the Republic of Ireland Under-17s were knocked out of the European Championships in freakish circumstances.

"It's heartbreaking, but couldn't be prouder of the lads because they gave everything and it just hasn't come our way", said the Cherry Orchard defender.

"I'm sure their keeper may have come off the line as well but it's his decision, isn't it, and there's nothing we can do about it". Nothing we can dwell on now. Honestly, they've given everything, 100 per cent every game.
