Alan Browne ended Ireland's goal drought by opening the scoring, while James Collins scored the Boys in Green's second, five minutes from the end.

But a strike by Dusan Vlahovic and two second half goals from Aleksandar Mitrovic were Ireland's undoing.

Kenny was frustrated by the absence of V-A-R.

The only goal of the game was a first-half own goal.
