Martin O'Neill says his Republic of Ireland side have it "all to play for" in Dublin on Tuesday after they claimed a goalless draw in the first leg of the World Cup play-off with Denmark.
O'Neill's side had just 28% of possession in Copenhagen but were well-organised and disciplined as they frustrated the home side.
Denmark had chances but a combination of their poor finishing and impressive saves from Darren Randolph ensured O'Neill's side will start the second leg on level terms.
The visitors' only clear opportunity saw Kasper Schmeichel save Cyrus Christie's attempted chip before Jeff Hendrick's follow-up was blocked.
"It was a tough evening and the players did splendidly," said O'Neill. "We've come out the other side and it's all to play for. We'll have to win a game and we might have to score a couple because Denmark are capable of scoring.
"They had one really great chance. Overall we restricted them. An away goal would have been great but we didn't carve out that many chances. We need to be more creative [in Dublin]. We're still in the tie."
The Republic of Ireland are aiming to make their first appearance at a World Cup finals since Japan and Korea in 2002, when Mick McCarthy's side reached the last 16.
The second leg of the play-off for a place in Russia next summer is at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Tuesday.
