Irish fans left fuming as James McClean is denied a stonewall penalty

Ireland fans were whipped into a frenzy of fury after the referee failed to award a penalty for what was a blatant foul on James McClean by an Italian defender.
It's currently 0-0 between Ireland and Italy after an intense 45 minutes but, with just over a minute before the break, Federico Bernardeschi clearly bundled over McClean as he bounded towards goal. The referee, Ovidiu Haţegan, also ignored another stonewall spot kick for Daryl Murphy.
The Irish fans are not happy.
Ref hopefully give us an easy peno now cause he feels bad #IRLITA— Jimbimbo (@jimbosmyname) June 22, 2016
