It was a memorable night on international duty for Southampton's teenage striker Michael Obafemi, who, upon first inclusion to Republic of Ireland's senior squad, made his full debut in a 0-0 draw with Denmark.

The Dublin-born youngster, facing Danish colleague Pierre-Emile HĂžjbjerg, replaced Callum O'Dowda for the final ten minutes of the tie, but neither side were able to make a breakthrough.

The Dane's had secured top spot in League B's Group 4 prior to tonight's stalemate, while Ireland were disappointingly resigned to bottom, despite a significant personal achievement for 18-year-old Obafemi.

Elsewhere, Moi Elyounoussi experienced mixed fortunes on Norway duty, as his side registered a 2-0 success over Cyprus, cementing them as League C, Group 3 winners.

Ola Kamara netted a goal in each half, but Saints' winger, who has been influential during Norway's successful Nations League campaign, received a red card moments before the final whistle.
