Switzerland qualify for World Cup finals

Switzerland qualify for World Cup finals

He has been linked with the Scotland job after transforming Northern Ireland's global fortunes since taking over in 2012 but said: "I haven't even considered that".

"I'm very satisfied with my team and with what they have achieved, not just today because it's been a long process", Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic said.

O'Neill's team failed to register a shot on target at Windsor Park in the first leg but this was a far more adventurous display and, after several near misses from Chris Brunt in the first half, they were nearly rewarded late on, only for Evans to be denied. There were some players in tears, everyone was struggling to hold back their emotions. I don't think it's a reasonable question at this time.

"I thought the performance was magnificent but ultimately we've gone out to a really poor decision in the first leg". We want to show that again and qualify for Russian Federation. That's what we asked.

Twitter user James Lorenzo created a "supercut" from just the final 20 minutes of the second leg to give you an idea as to what you missed. We don't always have top-level players but we have top-level characters.

"You can't compare the two legs and performance".

After failing to muster a shot on target in the first leg, Northern Ireland forced Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer into action early when he tipped over a 30-yard shot by Chris Brunt over the bar.

"What we got was a reaction".

Saville, increasingly having more influence on the game, spread a glorious pass out to Ward and his cross was nodded wide by Washington in a terrific counter-attacking move. If it wasn't for the penalty we'd still be playing extra time now. None had been born the last time Northern Ireland played at a World Cup, in 1986. "It's a hard time and they will make decisions going forward, certainly the likes of Aaron and Gareth, at 38 and 37, and Chris".

"I could name them all - they were fabulous".
