REP OF IRELAND 0-0 DENMARK
Drama right at the death as the full-time whistle goes. Republic of Ireland pick up their first point of the Nations League as Denmark move clear at the top of Group B4.
90+3: PENALTY? Duffy, who attempts to get on the end of Christie's cross, goes to ground after a coming together with Dalsgaard. The referee stops the game but it's not in Ireland's favour. The referee books Duffy for simulation.
90: There will be TWO minutes of added time. Will there be a winner?
89: YELLOW! McClean is cautioned for a late challenge on Braithwaite.
87: SAVE! Randolph keeps another Braithwaite effort out.
84: SAVE! Ireland lose the ball deep inside their own half. Sisto pounces, playing in Braithwaite but the forward's shot is well kept out by Randolph.
82: SUB! A final change for the hosts as Aiden O'Brien replaces Shane Long.
79: SUB! Dolberg is replaced by Chelsea defender Christensen. A defensive change that suggests Denmark will be happy to leave Dublin with a point.
77: There's no way through for Stevens, who ends up fouling Poulsen to hand Denmark a free-kick deep inside their own half.
74: Ireland try to release Long on the counter but Jorgensen does well to win the race to the ball.
71: SAVE! The hosts burst into life with a brilliant counter-attack. Long lays off Stevens' cross to Christie, who hammers the ball towards goal. Schmeichel is up to the task though, parrying the ball away to safety.
68: Braithwaite has time and space to get a shot away but not for the first time this evening the finishing is poor.
WATCH: ARTER'S CLEARANCE
Here's the moment Harry Arter kept the scores level...
65: SUB! A second change for the hosts as Arter is replaced by Robinson.
64: FREE-KICK! Shone lines up the free-kick but can only drill the ball high over Randolph's crossbar.
63: YELLOW! Christie pulls Delaney back to hand Denmark a free-kick in a dangerous position.
60: Denmark are starting to dominate proceedings now. Delaney clips the ball to the far post in search of the run of Larsen, but Doherty does well to deal with the danger.
58: OFF THE LINE! Right place, right time for Arter, who clears Kjaer's powerful header off the line.
56: YELLOW! A combination of Delaney and Jorgensen stop Long in his tracks. The referee can take his pick as both players fouled the striker and he cautions Delaney.
55: WIDE! It opens up for Sisto, who attempts to bend the ball into the far corner. However, he doesn't get enough bend on the ball to trouble Randolph. Goal kick to the hosts...
52: Schone switches the play, drilling a diagonal pass in search of Larsen. However, the ball skips off the turf and the full-back cannot keep it in play.
50: Sisto cuts in off the left flank once again but this time he looks to pick out Poulsen at the far post. There's just a bit too much on the cross and the ball bounces out for a goal kick to Ireland.
47: SUB! The hosts have been forced into a change at the break. O'Dowda is replaced by Enda Stevens.
46: Denmark get us back underway in Dublin...
Denmark finish the half in strong fashion as Sisto's curling shot strike the foot of the post. The half-time whistle comes at a good time for Martin O'Neill's side.
45: There will be ONE minute of added time...
43: CHANCE! Doherty fails to deal with Dalsgaard's cross and it almost allows Braithwaite in. Doherty recovers though to deflect Braithwaite's shot behind.
41: Sisto plays a cross in the direction of Poulsen at the far post, but Kevin Long is well positioned to head clear for the hosts.
39: CHANCE! Duffy, who is normally so good in this situation, gets on the end of Hendrick's excellent cross, but the defender cannot direct his header on target.
38: Clever play from Long, who wins a free-kick backing into Kjaer...
35: The tempo of this game has been really slow but so far Ireland will be happy with the way they've restircted Denmark's attacking game, especially considering the result the last time these two sides met.
32: CORNER! Dolberg gets around the back of the Irish defence but Larsen's cross has too much on it. The striker gets a touch but he cannot direct his effort on target.
29: FREE-KICK! Another chance for Schone to deliver the ball into the box but it's a really poor effort as the ball sails out for a goal kick.
27: Christie's long throw is cleared by a combination of Poulsen and Sisto.
24: O'Dowda, who looks a touch groggy, is also getting treatment. It does look like he'll be able to continue though.
22: Braithwaite's shot almost deflects into the path of Delaney. The ball is there to be won and the Danish midfielder slides in and catches Randolph, who rushes out to meet the ball. The whistle goes for a free-kick to Ireland but there will be a pause as Randolph gets some treatment.
21: Dolberg attempts to flick a deflected cross towards goal with his head but he gets too much of it and the ball loops over the crossbar.
19: Sisto lines up a shot from distance but the ball sails high over Randolph's crossbar.
17: McClean's cross is flicked on by Keogh but Denmark clear the ball through Poulsen.
14: WIDE! The ball drops to Dalsgaard and he shows good technique to volley the ball back towards goal. The direction is not quite there though as the ball bounces safely wide of Randolph's goal.
12: FREE-KICK! A chance for Ireland as Duffy and Keogh trot into the Denmark penalty area. O'Dowda's cross is a good one but Kjaer heads clear for the visitors.
10: McClean goes long in search of Shane Long but Kjaer rises above the Ireland striker to win the ball for his side.
8: YELLOW! Arter slides in recklessly and catches Braithwaite late. It's a poor a chalenge from the Republic of Ireland midfielder.
5: CHANCE! Hendrick's clean through on goal but he passes up on the opportunity to give the hosts the lead, firing wide of Schmeichel's near post.
It's an extraordinary sequence of play that give the hosts the chance to open the scoring. Arter goes down injured and Denmark stop playing. Hendrick nicks the ball away from Delaney before running through on goal. It's fair to say the Danish players are not happy with Hendrick.
3: FREE-KICK! An early chance for Shone to whip the ball into the box but his cross is a poor one as Hendrick clears at the near post.
1: KICK-OFF! The hosts get us underway at the Aviva Stadium...
