Martin O'Neill said Republic of Ireland has it "all to play for" in Dublin on Tuesday after his team claimed a goalless draw in the first leg of the World Cup playoff with Denmark.

O'Neill's side had just 28 percent of possession in Copenhagen but was well-organized and disciplined as it frustrated the home side, BBC reported.

"It was a tough evening and the players did splendidly," said O'Neill.

"We've come out the other side and it's all to play for. We'll have to win a game and we might have to score a couple because Denmark are capable of scoring."

The Republic of Ireland is aiming to make its first appearance at a World Cup finals since Japan and Korea in 2002, when Mick McCarthy's side reached the last 16.
