An absolutely shocking end to a great game, Jimmy Corcoran is in absolute bits here after being sent off for coming off his line early as he saved a must save penalty at the end of today’s European quarter-final.
Ireland were then not allowed to make a substitution to bring on their other keeper and the Centre back had to go in goal.
Despite diving the right way the ball just goes over his hands and the Irish lads should feel very hard done by.
Watch it here:

Mind blown by that decision. His left foot is clearly on the line. No idea why he’s given him a second yellow either. Either way keep your head up Jimmy Corcoran ☘️
