Everton striker Kean, Parrott sent off in U21 clash

Everton striker Moise Kean was sent off for Italy U21 in their 0-0 draw with the Republic of Ireland.

Former Juventus youngster Kean came off the bench, but lasted under 20 minutes before his dismissal for pushing Tottenham striker Troy Parrott in the chest, with the Irish player also receiving his second yellow card in the incident.

Italy U21 coach Paolo Nicolato said, “It's our own fault, we know these environments, the way they see competition and sportsmanship, so we knew full well that we shouldn't have fallen for their provocation.

“Qualification is not a walk in the park, there are strong teams and we need to work to get there."

The next Italy game is against Armenia on Monday.
