Watch: Adam Idah Harshly Sent Off After Incident With Wycombe Player

It has been a big couple of months for Adam Idah.

The Cork native made his senior international debut in September, starting the games against Bulgaria and Finland. While his contributions in the fixtures earlier this month due to the false positive coronavirus test of an FAI staff member, it's clear he will play a big part under Stephen Kenny.

Idah has also played a bigger role at club level. He isn't yet a regular start at Norwich, but he does play some part in nearly every game.

That included the one against Wycombe Wanderers today, with the Cork native coming off the bench as his side secured a dramatic 2-1 victory late on. However, the 19-year old would be sent off in injury time.

It was fairly harsh.

A Wycombe defender grabbed Idah's legs while on the ground, stopping him from running. In an attempt to free himself, he pushed the player to the ground, who then proceeded to grab his face despite little indication that Idah actually made any contact with it.

The referee would produce a straight red card.

It seemed like a harsh decision, with Idah now set to be suspended for three games.

A number of Norwich supporters certainly didn't agree with the referee.

This was probably a bit of inexperience on Idah's behalf and he could have reacted differently to the incident. It's one he will learn from.
