Roy Keane not impressed with Ampadu’s reaction to a challenge from Darren Randolph.
On Sunday, Wales went on against the Republic of Ireland for their third match of the UEFA Nations League at the Aviva Stadium.
The match ended in a goalless draw but there were a few controversial moments in that match.
When Ireland goalkeeper Darren Randolph ran into Ethan Ampadu, Ampadu went down but the penalty shouts were waved away by the referee.
There was minimal contact between the two and pundit Roy Keane found it disgraceful with the midfielder’s reaction.

“Just disgraceful, really,” Keane said on ITV. “This Ampadu, like, what’s the game coming to?
“He should be ashamed of himself, grabbing his head. I’d be embarrassed if I was him. Ridiculous.”
Ampadu was again involved in an incident when James McClean picked up a second yellow for a tackle on the 20-year old.
“[McClean] has caught [Ampadu] on the toe,” pundit Ian Wright said.
“It’s one of those because of the ferocity at which he’s gone in, it looks worse than it is.
“I don’t think McClean helps himself going across and doing this [pointing in his face].
“He pushed him in the head – he should get sent off for that.”
The 20-year old midfielder moved to Bramall Lane on a season-long loan and still has three years left on his contract with the Blues.
