Ireland Exit Under-17 European Championships In Controversial Shootout

16 May 2018

Football is a cruel game, juxtapositioned with moments of extreme joy and devastating despair, both of which were on full show during the Under-17 European Championships quarter-final between Netherlands and Republic of Ireland, with the Irish knocked-out of the competition in bewildering fashion. With the Irish missing their first penalty, Corcoran needed to save Daishawn Redan's kick to keep the tie alive.

However, referee Zbynek Proske showed the shot-stopper his second yellow as an understandably distraught Corcoran dropped to the floor in reaction to the decision.

Ideally, Facebook's in-person inspections of these hundreds of app-makers will turn up the truth sooner rather than later. Facebook's response to the story has led to a promised investigation into the myPersonality quiz and associated apps.

The penalty was forced to be retaken, which Redan did to see the Dutch advance to the semis.

FIFA's Law 14 on the penalty kick state: 'If the goalkeeper is sent off during the taking of kicks from the penalty mark, he shall be replaced by a player who finished the match'.

Newcastle adds to Chelsea's blues
It has been hard to believe that this was the same man who popularised the switch to a three-at-the-back formation last season. If looks could kill when Newcastle's third went in, all 11 of Chelsea's players would've dropped dead on the pitch right then.

Manager of the Republic of Ireland senior team Martin O'Neill was on the pitch after the Netherlands controversially saw off Ireland on penalties to leave our Euro hopes in the dust.

Ireland boss Colin O'Brien claims the referee had twice warned the Dutch keeper for moving off the line early without taking action, before carding Corcoran.

A mother scared away a black bear which attacked her five-year-old daughter outside their home in Colorado, officials have said. The attack happened early Sunday near Grand Junction, about 240 miles (386 kilometers) west of Denver.

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. This is football and that's why we play sport; for the ups and downs.
