Troy Parrott Receives Controversial Red Card In Altercation With Moise Kean

Troy Parrot Red Card

Troy Parrott was sent off for the Republic of Ireland in their clash with Italy in the U21 European Championship qualifier at Tallaght Stadium. 

The game, which finished 0-0, was played on a knife-edge with both sides unable to break the deadlock but in the 64th minute both teams were reduced to 10 men as Parrott and Italy’s Moise Kean were given their marching orders.

The incident began when Kean and Conor Coventry were battling for possession when the 19-year-old Italian fouled the midfielder.

After the referee awarded the free to Ireland, Parrott gave Kean a slight shove so he could get the ball before Kean retaliated with a push of his own but unfortunately for the Everton man, his hands made contact with Parrott’s face.

The referee showed Kean a straight red card, much to the delight of the home support, but those cheers were short-lived as Parrott, harshly perhaps, was shown a second yellow for his role in the incident.
