Clare’s Ryan Nolan takes out Dublin’s Troy Parrott in UEFA Youth League tie

Inter Milan defender Ryan Nolan conceded a second-half penalty in the Nerazzurri’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham in the UEFA Youth League on Tuesday.

Nolan brought down compatriot Troy Parrott in the box with Jack Roles smashing home a penalty to secure a 1-1 draw for Spurs in their opening game in Group B.

Parrott was dismissed later in the match after receiving a second yellow card for a challenge on the goalkeeper. However, the referee forgot that he’s already booked him before the young Ireland striker was about to be subbed.

Parrott is substitued for Rodel Richards while the Inter players and staff scream at the referee. The referee realises his error and runs over and red cards Parrott who was sitting on the bench while Richards’ substitution was reversed.

The Dubliner signed his first professional contract with Spurs in July after starring for Ireland at the UEFA European Under-17 Championship in May where he scored three goals in four games for his country.

The Spurs forward hails from Buckingham Street in Dublin’s north inner city and he was raised in the same area as Ireland internationals Wes Hoolahan and Graham Burke.

Meanwhile Nolan made his Inter Milan debut earlier this summer in a 3-0 friendly win over Lugano.

The 19-year-old centre-back joined Inter  on a three-year deal from Torre Pacheco in Spain in 2015. The Clare native moved to Murica from Shannon when he was eight-years-old and played underage football in Spain until he was 16 when he was brought to Inter by Pierluigi Casiraghi, who also brought the likes of Mario Balotelli and Philippe Coutinho to the San Siro.
