Half-Time Report: Georgia frustrate Republic of Ireland in goalless first half

The Republic of Ireland are level at 0-0 with Georgia after 45 minutes of their Euro 2016 qualifier at the Aviva Stadium.

The Republic of Ireland have been unable to break down Georgia in the first half of their Euro 2016 qualifier which is poised at 0-0.

Ireland were presented with the game's first chance after seven minutes, but Robbie Keane couldn't keep his effort down after neat interplay from Wes Hoolahan and Jon Walters.

Five minutes later, Levan Mchedlidze escaped the attentions of the home defence but sent a weak effort into the hands of Shay Given.

Tornike Okriashvili then attempted an overhead kick which Given was relieved to see trickle wide.

Seamus Coleman - who was recalled to the side at the expense of Cyrus Christie - thundered a volley towards the top corner in the 38th minute, but Nukri Revishvili batted away the strike.
