Republic of Ireland are still waiting for their first win in the Nations League after being held to a dour 0-0 draw by Denmark on Saturday.

Martin O’Neill’s side are bottom of their three-team group, with this tepid stalemate at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium following a 4-1 thrashing by Wales in their first match.

Ireland are without a win in their last four competitive matches.

Denmark beat Wales in their opener and have four points from two matches in the new competition, which offers qualification for Euro 2020.

Matt Doherty was handed a first start for the Republic as O’Neill made six changes.

There was a place for Cardiff midfielder Harry Arter following his return to the squad after resolving his differences with assistant manager Roy Keane.
