Northern Ireland defender Corry Evans apologises for wife's xenophobic tweet

Northern Ireland defender Corry Evans apologises for wife's xenophobic tweet”

The Mirror took screenshots of the tweets she sent before her account disappeared.

Evans' wife Lisa responded by tweeting: "Romanian gypsy c***!"

The wife of a Northern Ireland footballer at the centre of a penalty kick controversy has apologised for a racist tweet about the referee.

She wrote: "And to think Northern Ireland has probably homed one of his smelly relatives!"

The NI midfielder was penalised during the team's 1-0 defeat against Switzerland for a perceived handball, though the ball had actually hit the player's back.

Switzerland scored and went on to win 1-0, taking a crucial away-goal lead into the second leg of the play-off for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. Ungrateful t***! Anyway onwards and upwards.

"The comments were published in the heat of the moment", he said. In all of my career, this is a decision which has really, really hurt because in a game of such magnitude for a referee to guess.

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill said after the game: 'It is staggering to think that the referee can award a penalty in that situation.

"We said that we are still very much in this tie and although the disappointment and the anger of the decision is still brewing, we have to pick ourselves up and make sure that we give everything going into the second leg".

"Corry has just gone to block it".

"I thought the game was played in great spirit by both sides, it was quite physical, the challenges were going in but I felt all the lads stayed on their feet, bar one tackle by from Schar in the first half". It's bewildering in this day in age.

Referee Hategan was previously caught up in a racism row of his own, after he allowed play to continue despite abuse of a black player.
