Ukraine coach Mykhailo Fomenko would now hope Ukrainians to beat Poland in Marseille next Tuesday, and hope the Irish lose heavily to Germany, to have any chance of progressing.
In another Group C match between Poland and Germany, the former's Arkadiusz Milik had the best chance when he bundled the ball wide from point-blank range early in the second-half.
Poland's star man Robert Lewandowski was kept in close check by Bayern Munich teammates Boateng and the returning Mats Hummels.
Germany Toni Kroos (left) tried hard but could not score.
Germany's Jerome Boateng complained that his side had been "too rigid", but agreed that a draw was a fair result from a tightly contested encounter.
