Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill: 'We could not have asked for more'

Michael O'Neill says that Northern Ireland are in a situations they "could only dream of".

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill has said that the possibility of qualifying for Euro 2016 is beyond anyone's wildest expectations.

A win over Hungary at Windsor Park on Monday would see Northern Ireland qualify for a European Championship for the first time in 14 attempts.

"We are in a situation we could only dream of at the start of the campaign," O'Neill told BBC Sport. "It is a fantastic position to be in.

"It was a really good performance - we dealt with the setback of losing a goal and came strong again in the second half.

"We picked up three points, and got through the game without any injuries or suspensions - we could not have asked for more."

Northern Ireland are currently top of Group F after playing eight of the 10 matches.
