The Football Association of Ireland have undertaken a review of the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign and will now speak to manager Stephen Kenny.

A statement issued on Monday night confirmed that board members had met and that that they will "now provide feedback to the Republic of Ireland Men's senior team management."

Kenny’s future has been a source of debate throughout a qualifying campaign that started poorly but finished strongly.

Ireland struggled in the early stages and a low point was a home defeat to Luxembourg, but they showed an upturn in fortunes - three wins and four clean sheets across October and November - to finish third in their World Cup qualifying group.

"The Football Association of Ireland can confirm that Board members undertook positive and detailed discussions around a review of the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualification tournament in its entirety at its scheduled monthly meeting in Dublin this evening," a statement read.

"CEO Jonathan Hill will now provide feedback to the Republic of Ireland Men’s Senior Team management accordingly and will move the process forward. As with all employee matters, this process will remain confidential.

"The FAI will be making no further comment on this matter until it is appropriate."
