REPUBLIC OF IRELAND have gone four games without a goal for the first time in 22 years after a lucky 0-0 draw in Denmark.
Under pressure boss Martin O'Neill couldn't get his faltering stars firing as the visitors failed to muster a single shot on target.

It was dogged performance from the Irish defence but they had Nicolai Jorgensen to thank for ensuring a drab stalement.
The striker missed a sitter when he robbed Richard Keogh of possession on 67 minutes and struck the post with just the keeper to beat.
Ireland went into the clash already relegated from their Nations League group but lacked any confidence in a game where they registered just 27 per cent of the possession.
They were given an early warning sign when Christian Eriksen's effort was parried into the path of Yussuf Poulsen who curled it wide.
