'Terrible decision' - Tottenham fans react as Onomah receives red card for England

By Will Butcher

Tottenham fans have blasted the referee’s decision to show playmaker Josh Onomah a red card on Twitter in England Under-20’s World Cup clash against Mexico.

Paul Simpson’s side secured passage into the semi-finals of the competition with a 1-0 win thanks to new Liverpool signing Dom Solanke’s goal in the 47th minute.

However, the Young Lions were made to hold on for a nervy last 20 minutes with only 10 men, as referee Mohammed Abdulla Hassan decided to send off Onomah for a second yellow card.

The Spurs academy product will have felt aggrieved to be sent off, after it appeared that he was in possession of the ball before accidentally standing on a Mexico defender’s ankle.

It will now see Spurs’ number 25 miss the semi-final in South Korea against Italy on Thursday, before the final is played on Sunday.
