A meeting to arrange fixtures for the Republic of Ireland's group in the forthcoming European Championship qualifiers has ended without agreement in Moscow.

The FAI Chief Executive, John Delaney, told RTÉ that Ireland, Russia and Slovakia did agree dates, but one of the other countries applied their veto.

As a result, Delaney confirmed that the draw will now be taken out of the hands of the countries involved and made by UEFA.
