Ireland frustrate dominant Denmark in dull Nations League draw

(Reuters) - Denmark dominated possession but couldn't find a way to break down a dogged Republic of Ireland team as the two sides played out a dull scoreless draw in their UEFA Nations League B, Group 4 clash in Dublin on Saturday.

 

The visitors were missing injured playmaker Christian Eriksen, who scored a stunning hat-trick in a 5-1 World Cup playoff win at the Aviva Stadium 11 months ago, and his quality was sorely missed in a game that was bereft of chances.

 

Denmark winger Pione Sisto skimmed the outside of the far post in first-half stoppage time and Danish captain Simon Kjaer had a header cleared off the line from a corner in the second period, while the Irish barely managed an attack of note.

 

Cyrus Christie forced Kasper Schmeichel to make a diving save in the 71st minute, but the Irish seemed content to settle for a draw that leaves Denmark top of the group on four points, with Wales a point behind and the Irish bottom on one point with all the teams having played two games.
