Duffy seals late draw for Ireland

An injury time goal from Shane Duffy rescued a point for Stephen Kenny in his first game in charge of the Republic of Ireland.

It finished Bulgaria 1 Ireland 1 in Sofia in their opening Nations League encounter.

Duffy who secured a loan move to Scottish Champions Celtic earlier in the week salvaged a draw for the Irish with a powerful header.

Kenny handed a debut to Norwich striker Adam Idah up front, while Matt Doherty was preferred to Seamus Coleman at right-back.

Coleman didn't feature in the game.

Ireland play Finland next on Sunday.
