Northern Ireland player's wife launches astonishing rant at referee after penalty decision

Northern Ireland player's wife launches astonishing rant at referee after penalty decision

"It also depends on how Switzerland play themselves".

Henry's clear hand ball - not spotted by the match officials in the Stade De France - helped set up a William Gallas victor that sent France through to South Africa 2010 at the Republic's expense.

The Northern Ireland midfielder apologises after his wife reacts to a controversial penalty during the team's World Cup qualifier.

Northern Ireland were dealt a serious sporting injustice on Thursday night. The ball clearly strikes Corry on the back and the referee has a clear view of the incident.

Paul Merson tells Jack Wilshere to leave Gunners and join AC Milan
When we have played with a 10, we have had Dele [Alli] and [Adam] Lallana. "I don't think Jack is a 10. But good luck to Jack, I think he is an outstanding player and I have got nothing but respect for him.


It was a bad decision by the referee, who then booked Evans - the brother of West Brom and former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans - ruling him out of the return leg on Sunday. We're always great as the underdogs, so I think it was a bit of a bonus us not being seeded.

"I said "ref, you have to be 100 per cent here". I spent three hours in a video conference with Federation Internationale de Football Association the other week on video assistant referees (VAR) and certainly when you see what happened tonight you would be an advocate of it".

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill was also angry and bemoaned the lack of a video referee, one day before VAR is used in an official game in the United Kingdom for the first time when England face Germany. "They played too defensively against us and they did not do enough to score so they're going to come to Basel, try to be more offensive and that will mean it is more open for us". Post-match, Evans told the BBC the decision was "disgraceful". I clearly didn't put my hand up.

Evans was booked for the incident, so will be suspended for the second leg of the tie in Basel on Sunday.

Padmavati began its promotions by releasing one poster at a time, with the beginning of the festival of Navratras. Deepika's Ghoomar dance in its first song also impressed everyone. " Shahid Kapoor brought that with him".


"There's still a lot of confidence and belief in the group that they're capable of coming here and making things hard for Switzerland, and hopefully we get the result that we are after".

Switzerland created the better chances and looked the superior side, although Northern Ireland's reaction after the penalty was impressive.

Haris Seferovic should have scored in the 17th minute. Fair play to them, I thought they were very good, they passed the ball really well and they have got some good players in their team.

Jonny Evans had earlier made a terrific block to deny Blerim Dzemaili, who later provided a cross that Seferovic narrowly failed to reach as it zipped across the face of the goal.

Evans is hoping Northern Ireland can summon up the spirit that saw them bounce back from an opening defeat in Euro 2016 to beat Ukraine and qualify for the last 16 against all the odds.
