CORK'S Adam Idah was a penalty hero for Norwich City as they knocked Tottenham Hotspur out of the FA Cup.

The 19-year-old former College Corinthians striker has starred for Irish underage teams in recent years and nailed a hat-trick against Preston in an FA Cup clash in January.

Since then, apart from a Premier League start against Man United, Idah has been on the fringes but he came off the bench on Wednesday night and kept his cool in the shootout.

Jose Mourinho gave another Irish rising star Troy Parrott a rare outing but the Dubliner, unfortunately, saw his spot-kick saved by Tim Krul. 

Norwich now host the winner of Derby and Man United in the quarter-final.
