It was a moment that had social media collectively aghast and head scratching.

The Republic of Ireland under 17s lost their European Championship quarter final in the most controversial fashion at the culmination of a penalty shootout against the heavily fancied Netherlands. 

After forcing penalties with the Netherlands with a 1-1 draw in Chesterfield, Ireland looked poised to take the spot kicks to sudden death with James Corcoran saving the final Dutch kick taken by Daishawn Redan of Chelsea. 

But his moment of joy suddenly turned to shock as he received a second yellow card for a supposed infraction. The Dutch were allowed retake the penalty in question to progress 5-4 on spot kicks as Redan converted at the second attempt.
