Galway progressed to the All-Ireland u21 final this afternoon with a shock win over Kerry, on a scoreline of 2-14 to 2-10. The Kingdom were heavy favourites following their Munster final victory over Cork.

However, a Galway tour de force in the first half saw the Tribesmen open a nine-point lead.

Kerry needed to respond quickly, and they did just after the break, with a Matthew O’Sullivan goal.

However, he appeared to throw it up to himself before slapping the ball into the net, and there were many who felt that the goal should not have been allowed.

To be fair to the referee, O’Sullivan clearly did not intend on throwing the ball up as it was knocked out of his hands, but it is certainly a grey area and the Galway backs had a case for complaint.

Take a look below:
