KXIP vs KKR Live Score

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.

Corcoran pulled off an impressive save to keep Holland's fifth and decisive spot-kick from Daishawn Redan out and to seemingly keep his side's hopes alive.

Inexplicably, Proske then shocked all watching at Proact Stadium, Chesterfield, UK, by astoundingly showing Corcoran a second yellow card, resulting in a red and his dismissal, reducing the young shot stopper to tears.

The remarkable exchange saw a distraught Corcoran forced to hand his goalkeeper's shirt to defender Oisin McEntee.

The teams were forced to decide the match by a penalty shootout after the match had ended 1-1.
