Everton’s Moise Kean sent off for Italy U21

Everton striker Moise Kean saw red in an ill-tempered affair between Italy and Republic of Ireland U21 sides on Thursday evening.

The 19-year-old was introduced as a substitute in the 46th minute of the match, and was shown a red card for a push to Troy Parrott’s chest. Parrott himself was shown a second yellow card for his part in the incident, leaving both sides unhappy with the action shown by the referee.

The match ended up in a 0-0 stalemate, and was much more notable for controversial incidents.

Republic of Ireland U21: Kelleher; Masterson, O’Shea, Scales; L O’Connor, Ronan (Knight 62), Coventry, Molumby (Kilkenny 85), Elbouzedi (Obafemi 68); Parrott, Idah

Italy U21: Carnesecchi; Del Prato, Bastoni, Marchizza (Adjapong 23); Locatelli, Tonali, Carraro (Sottil 68); Frattesi, Pinamonti (Cutrone 46), Scamacca (Kean 46)
