The Republic of Ireland have drawn 0-0 against Georgia in their Euro 2020 qualifier.

Mick McCarthy’s side lacked inspiration in Tibilisi on Saturday, while their opponents were more creative but didn’t have the cutting edge to take advantage.

Ireland mounted a late onslaught after 19-year-old debutant Aaron Conolly forced a 90th minute save from the Georgia keeper, then fired into the side netting.

And defender Shane Duffy headed straight at Loria from an injury-time corner, but Ireland ultimately had to make do with a goalless Group D draw.

They side next face Switzerland on Tuesday.
