Evans 'gutted' after 'disgraceful' penalty in Northern Ireland defeat

10 Novembre 2017

"It's staggering really to think that the referee can award a penalty in that situation".

Video assistance would have clarified both incidents and O'Neill was left bemoaning the absence of VAR a day before one is trialled for the first time in an official game in the United Kingdom when England face Germany.

"Corry's arm is not above his head or in an unnatural position, it's not away from his body and the ball didn't even hit him in the arm".

"No one claimed for it".

That was not the only call Hategan made that left O'Neill livid.

O'Neill was incensed after the game, with his anger also fuelled by the referee's refusal to dismiss Fabian Schar for a unsafe foul on Stuart Dallas in the fifth minute.

"The tackle by Schar was a borderline red card, the referee certainly didn't do us any favours tonight".

Apple says no operations were moved from Ireland
Throughout its history, Apple has designed new products - and established entirely new industries - by focusing on innovation. It adds that Apple pays "billions" in taxes to the the statutory 35% rate on investment income from its overseas cash.

Switzerland manager Vladimir Petkovic sympathised with O'Neill and his team but did highlight his own side's superiority, with Haris Seferovic twice unfortunate not to score and Shaqiri nearly bending an effort into the top corner.

"We have to process it, we have to forget about it".

"We have to forget about it, I thought the players' reaction was very good, it's very hard when you go behind in a game of this magnitude to an incident like that but I thought they reacted very well". The good thing we have now is when you've been through those experiences, you don't want to go back'.

"And to book the player (Evans) as well". "There's anger in the dressing room in there. They feel aggrieved about what happened".

Shaqiri's viciously-hit volley cannoned into Corry Evans' tucked-in arm as he swivelled in the box and the Blackburn midfielder, along with the majority of those inside Windsor Park, was in disbelief when a penalty was given.

Shaqiri said he did not know whether it was a penalty or not. "I tried to have a shot on goal and I don't know if he touched with his hand or not. The referee gave the penalty and that's football". They were funnelled wide by Northern Ireland, which meant advancing full-backs Rodriguez and Stephan Lichtsteiner became key attacking figures; many of their best moves involved at least one of that pair, but profligate finishing denied the visitors the chance to kill the tie off after 90 minutes. We had a lot of possession and created chances too.

"We have to pick ourselves up now and, hopefully, the lads can get a result out in Switzerland".
