The Republic of Ireland face Andorra on Thursday with Stephen Kenny still looking for a first win from 11 games.

The run has included six defeats and five draws, with just four goals scored, and has seen Ireland's World Cup 2022 chances in tatters after just two matches.

Here's the story so far.


1) BULGARIA 1-1 IRELAND
Nations League, 3 September 2020

Ireland goal attempts: 14 On target: 3

Shane Duffy's late header salvaged a point in Stephen Kenny's opening game and the comeback provided positive momentum as his tenure began.

Ireland: Darren Randolph, Matt Doherty, Shane Duffy, John Egan, Enda Stevens, Jeff Hendrick, James McCarthy, (Robbie Brady 70), Conor Hourihane, Callum O'Dowda (Callum Robinson 74), Adam Idah (Shane Long 77), Aaron Connolly.


2) IRELAND 0-1 FINLAND
Nations League, 6 September 2020

Goal attempts: 14 On target: 5

Substitute Fredrik Jensen scored a 64th-minute winner in a game where Ireland always looked second best, and blunt up front.

Ireland: Darren Randolph, Enda Stevens, Shane Duffy, John Egan, Matt Doherty, Robbie Brady, Callum O'Dowda (Callum Robinson 59), Aaron Connolly (James McClean 77), Adam Idah (David McGoldrick 66), Harry Arter, Jayson Molumby.


3) SLOVAKIA 0-0 IRELAND (Slovakia win on penalties)
Euro play-off semi-final, 8 October 2020

Goal attempts: 12 On target: 2

Ireland, who were without Adam Idah and Aaron Connolly due to some confused Covid-19 guidelines in advance of the game, created enough chances to win over the 120 minutes and even hit the woodwork but another blank led to penalties from which Kenny's men could only score twice.

Ireland: Darren Randolph; Matt Doherty, Shane Duffy, John Egan, Enda Stevens; James McCarthy (Alan Browne 60), Conor Hourihane, Jeff Hendrick; Callum Robinson (Callum O'Dowda 99), David McGoldrick (Shane Long 111), James McClean (Robbie Brady 60).


4) IRELAND 0-0 WALES
Nations League, 11 October 2020

Goal attempts: 12 On target: 1

Once again, Kenny's plans were thrown into disarray when five players had to withdraw after one positive Covid test. James McClean was sent off late on in a forgettable stalemate.

Ireland: Darren Randolph; Matt Doherty, Kevin Long (Cyrus Christie 25), Shane Duffy, Enda Stevens; Conor Hourihane, Jeff Hendrick, Jayson Molumby (Josh Cullen 90); Shane Long (Sean Maguire 74), Robbie Brady (Daryl Horgan 74), James McClean.


5) FINLAND 1-0 IRELAND
Nations League, 14 October 2020

Goal attempts: 10 On target: 4

Jensen, as he did in the reverse fixture, came up with the only goal of the game as Ireland struggled to create much of note.

Ireland: Darren Randolph; Matt Doherty, Enda Stevens, Shane Duffy, Dara O'Shea; Conor Hourihane, Jeff Hendrick (Adam Idah 75), Jayson Molumby (Jason Knight 84); Aaron Connolly, Daryl Horgan (Ronan Curtis 75), Sean Maguire (Robbie Brady 53).


6) ENGLAND 3-0 IRELAND
Friendly, 12 November 2020

Goal attempts: 3 On target: 2

Harry Maguire, Jadon Sancho and Dominic Calvert-Lewis scored the goals as Ireland were outclassed in Wembley with the game subsequently overshadowed by the fallout from a motivational video shown to the squad before the match. The FAI launched an investigation into the affair but were satisfied with the manager's explanation and no action was taken.

Ireland: Darren Randolph; Cyrus Christie (Kevin Long 61), Matt Doherty, Shane Duffy, John Egan (Dara O'Shea 14); Conor Hourihane (Jayson Molumby 71), Jeff Hendrick, Alan Browne; Daryl Horgan (Robbie Brady 61), Callum O'Dowda (James McClean 60), Adam Idah (Ronan Curtis 71).


7) WALES 1-0 IRELAND
Nations League, 15 November 2020

Goal attempts: 11 On target: 4

The hosts won thanks to a David Brooks header with 23 minutes to go and although Ireland created some chances, could not take any and Jeff Hendrick was sent off late on to compound their misery.

Ireland: Darren Randolph; Matt Doherty, Kevin Long, Shane Duffy, Dara O'Shea (Callum O'Dowda 82); Jayson Molumby (Conor Hourihane 75), Jeff Hendrick, Robbie Brady (Jack Byrne 82); Daryl Horgan (Jason Knight 59), James McClean, Adam Idah (James Collins 75).


8) IRELAND 0-0 BULGARIA
Nations League, 18 November 2020

Goal attempts: 7 On target: 0

The point earned was enough for Ireland to avoid relegation to Nations League C but it marked the team's seventh straight game without a goal, with Robbie Brady's strike off the crossbar the closest they came.

Ireland: Darren Randolph; Ryan Manning (Cyrus Christie 85), Kevin Long, Shane Duffy, Dara O'Shea; Conor Hourihane, Jason Knight, Robbie Brady (Jack Byrne 78); Ronan Curtis (Troy Parrott 85), Daryl Horgan (Josh Cullen 67), James Collins (Sean Maguire 85).

9) SERBIA 3-2 IRELAND
World Cup qualifier, 24 March 2021

Goal attempts: 6 On target: 2

Ireland opened the scoring but Aleksandar Mitrovic's quality brace earned a deserved victory for the hosts. The match had moments of promise with Alan Browne and James Collins' goals no more than Ireland warranted as the barren run in front of goal at least came to an end.

Ireland: Mark Travers; Seamus Coleman, Matt Doherty, Enda Stevens, Ciaran Clark (Robbie Brady 79), Dara O'Shea; Alan Browne (James Collins 79), Jayson Molumby (Jeff Hendrick 61), Josh Cullen; Callum Robinson (James McClean 79), Aaron Connolly (Shane Long 67).


10) IRELAND 0-1 LUXEMBOURG
World Cup qualifier, 27 March 2021

Goal attempts: 11 On target: 3

The manager described the defeat, thanks to Gerson Rodrigues' late effort, as "unacceptable" in the aftermath of one of our most shocking results in recent memory. Ireland's outside shot at World Cup qualification all but ended there and then.

Ireland: Gavin Bazunu; Seamus Coleman, Dara O'Shea, Ciaran Clark (James McClean 61); Matt Doherty (Robbie Brady HT), Enda Stevens, Josh Cullen (Jayson Molumby 88), Jason Knight, Alan Browne; Callum Robinson (Shane Long 73), James Collins (Troy Parrott 88).


11) QATAR 1-1 IRELAND
Friendly (played in Hungary), 30 March 2021

Goal attempts: 11 On target: 5

McClean opened the scoring early on but a strike at the start of the second half by Mohammed Muntari meant that Ireland's winless run under Kenny stretched to 11 games.

Ireland: Gavin Bazunu, Seamus Coleman, Dara O'Shea, Shane Duffy, Cyrus Christie, Jayson Molumby (Josh Cullen 84), Robbie Brady (Troy Parrott 22), James McClean (Ryan Manning 84), Jeff Hendrick (Alan Browne 84), Shane Long (Callum Robinson 57), Daryl Horgan (Jason Knight 57).
