Euro 2020 Qualification: Ireland Held to a Draw by Georgia

Republic of Ireland maintained their unbeaten record in Euro 2020 qualifying as they played out a lacklustre goalless draw in Georgia.

Mick McCarthy’s side struggled to create chances against their stubborn opponents, who dominated possession.

Substitute Aaron Connolly was denied a dream debut when his low shot late on was saved, before Shane Duffy headed straight at the goalkeeper.

The result means Ireland stay top of Group D with 12 points from six games.

Denmark, however, can move above them on goal difference if they beat Switzerland later on Saturday.
