Stephen Kenny rues poor finishing as Republic suffer defeat against Finland


Stephen Kenny was left ruing his side’s lack of match sharpness and finishing touch as the Republic of Ireland fell to the first defeat of his reign as manager. Ireland’s 1-0 loss to Finland in the Nations League marked a disappointing return of international football to Dublin after coronavirus lockdown. The defeat, in front of a near-empty Aviva Stadium, came at the hands of Fredrik Jensen who fired a second-half winner from close range just 18 seconds after coming on as a substitute.
