Republic of Ireland's hopes of qualifying for Euro 2020 suffered a setback on Saturday as they were held to an insipid 0-0 draw away to Georgia.

Mick McCarthy's side remain top of Group D on 12 points, but failure to win in Tbilisi has given Switzerland and Denmark – who they face in their final two games – hope of reeling them in.

The visitors offered almost no attacking threat in what was a truly woeful display, with John Egan's header against the post early on their only chance of note.

Qualification is still in Ireland's hands but they will need a significantly improved performance when they travel to Switzerland on Tuesday if they are to progress to the finals next year.

Georgia dominated possession throughout the first half but were unable to test Darren Randolph in the Ireland goal.

Valeri Qazaishvili squandered their best opportunity shortly before the interval, dragging wide from 18 yards after a swift counter-attack.

At the other end, Egan headed against Giorgi Loria's left-hand post after four minutes in what was the visitors' only clear sight of goal in a dire opening period.

Any hopes of an improved performance by Ireland after the break were soon dispelled, with the visitors swiftly settling back into their lacklustre rhythm.

  'A very handsome golden handshake' - calls for FAI to reveal details of John Delaney's €350k exit package THERE has been mounting pressure from across the political spectrum for the FAI to reveal the details of former boss John Delaney's exit package. However, in the wake of the news late on Saturday night that Mr Delaney had left the FAI, sport minister Shane Ross has said that State funding for the organisation can't be restored until the details of the exit package have been revealed.

Substitute Aaron Connolly fired into the side netting in stoppage time after a quick break, while Shane Duffy headed straight at the goalkeeper, as Ireland fell short of what would have been an undeserved win.

What does it mean? Ireland's hopes in the balance

Ireland remain unbeaten after six games but this will feel like a huge opportunity missed for McCarthy and his men. A win would have meant Ireland could have settled for draws in their final group games, but this result likely makes victory necessary from at least one of their remaining matches against their closest rivals. On this evidence, that will not be an easy task.

Hendrick rises above mediocrity

The Burnley midfielder was comfortably Ireland's brightest spark. His end product was lacking but he brought an energy that was sorely missing from the majority of his team-mates.

Whelan off the pace

Glenn Whelan said this week he moved to Scottish Premiership side Hearts to give himself the best chance of playing in Euro 2020, but McCarthy will be forced to explore other midfield options if he delivers more ineffective performances like this.

What's next?
