Stephen Kenny's contract ends with stalemate against New Zealand
Stephen Kenny's contract ended at the Aviva Stadium tonight, as Ireland and New Zealand played out an entertaining international friendly 1-1 draw.
As the Euro 2024 Group B campaign came to a conclusion elsewhere in Europe, Kenny must now wait to see if he is offered another deal by the FAI.
His team took the lead in the 28th minute, as Adam Idah opened the scoring following a sustained period of dominance against the Kiwis. But New Zealand were lively throughout and grabbed a deserved draw thanks to Matthew Garbett’s 59th-minute equaliser.
As Kenny’s future remains unclear, James McClean’s time in the green jersey is up, as the Derry man made his final appearance in a green shirt at Lansdowne Road.
After a 12-year international career and 103 caps, James McClean bids an emotional farewell to the Aviva Stadium crowd.
