Published 19/06/2012 | 05:00

Keith Andrews is in line to receive an automatic one-match ban but that could be doubled if the referee's report takes his petulant departure from the field in the dying minutes into account.

"It wasn't ideal," said Andrews, who received two yellow cards. "I didn't think it was a yellow card.

"It thought he was unfair for the majority of the game, and I still don't think it was a yellow card.

"I don't think he forgot I'd been booked. I think he was more than sure that it was my second, to be perfectly honest."

Trapattoni revealed that he had spoken to his midfielder.

"I spoke with him. I said, yes, also, there is already advice to have not this reaction.

"We know before, this Euros, the referees, they are being serious. But he is a little angry. I understand why he is angry with the decision."

Andrews did not reveal what he had said to the Turkish referee, Cuneyt Cakir.

"I've no regrets, it was frustration, yeah," he added.
