The first leg of the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup playoff against Denmark wasn’t exactly a thrilling spectacle as it ended 0-0.
Ireland’s tactics were clear as they looked to remain solid and exploit set-plays and long throw-ins and they frustrated the home side in a game that ended goalless.
Some poor finishing from Denmark made their job a bit easier, especially Pione Sisto, who missed a sitter around the half-hour mark after Darren Randolph palmed away a long-range effort from Christian Eriksen.
There was little in goalmouth action from either side and 0-0 was probably a fair score line.
The Irish, whose game plan was not pretty but was effective, will be hoping to get a famous win in the return leg at home on Tuesday evening, one that will see them qualify for Russia 2018.
