Republic of Ireland hold Denmark to 0-0 draw in first leg

Republic of Ireland hold Denmark to 0-0 draw in first leg

Irish players have the same mentality, they have a very strong team spirit, they are together and we have to overcome that. Overall I think we restricted them.

"Urged on by a big crowd as well". "If we have all the players available for us to choose from, that's always something".

Republic of Ireland fans celebrate after the FIFA World Cup qualifying play-off first leg 0-0 draw against Denmark at the Parken Stadium, Copenhagen.

"We want to play and we want to create chances, but we might get fewer opportunities than we normally do".

"The players put a big effort into the game". And I think we have to score a couple of goals because Denmark are capable of scoring too.

"I think that Denmark at home had control of the ball and they were trying to probe for openings".

O'Neill remained positive in his outlook following tonight's encounter, likening the situation his team now find themselves in to the crunch clash with Wales in the last group game of this campaign, where we must simply win the game to progress.

"We didn't score a goal obviously, but we're still in the tie".

While delighted to keep a clean sheet on the road, O'Neill admitted Ireland will need to offer more of an attacking threat when they welcome the Danes to the Aviva Stadium on Tuesday.

Hareide was disappointed after seeing his side threaten to take a meaningful advantage to Dublin, but hopeful that there is more to come. "We've set out with a gameplan", he said.

Ireland have employed 4-4-2 and 4-3-3 configurations in recent times, with the latter more likely for this first leg. James McClean and Robbie Brady will provide support for the lone striker, either Shane Long or Daryl Murphy, while Jeff Hendrick, David Meyler and Harry Arter are favourites to begin the match in midfield.

"But 0-0 at home is not a bad result".

Randolph produced a fine double save to deny Jens Stryger Larsen and Andreas Cornelius, and then saw Sisto fire wide of an open goal after he had beaten away Christian Eriksen's long-range effort during a torrid first half. "We will go to Dublin and try to get that goal".

"But we have to win the game at the Aviva".
