Croatia and Switzerland qualified for next year's World Cup after 0-0 draws with Greece and Northern Ireland respectively in their play-off second legs yesterday morning (Singapore time).

O'Neill's visitors still looked much brighter than they had been in Thursday's loss in Belfast, but the 25-year-old Seferovic was proving a real handful as he volleyed wide from a tight angle. "We did not play at our level, but more important is the result", said Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric."Greece played a good game tonight, it pushed us, but there was no serious opportunity (of a comeback)". They have given everything.

"We had a good match in Zagreb, but it was hard here". "He has a bit of time and decisions to make".

"Certainly at this minute in time, it's not a decision, and I am not thinking any further ahead than just being with the players".

Davis, who won his 100th Northern Ireland cap last week, spent four years on Rangers books, but returned to English football after the club's demotion to the fourth tier. The referee adjudged Corry Evans had handled Xherdan Shaqiri's shot though replays showed it hit the back of his shoulder.

The home side should have sealed a ticket to Russian Federation in the 85th minute, but Seferovic's poor day in front of goal went from bad to worse when he blazed over with the goal at his mercy.Northern Ireland nearly made him pay with a late rally, but Rodriguez cleared a Jonny Evans injury-time header off the line as Switzerland clung on.

Straight-talking midfielder Oliver Norwood summed up the mood.

However, he is reportedly considered a prime candidate to replace Gordon Strachan by some members of the Scottish FA board, while O'Neill also has supporters in the U.S., who are yet to name Bruce Arena's successor.

"We're missing out on the chance to go to the World Cup". "If it wasn't for the penalty we'd be playing extra time". At this level, for a group of players that deserve more...we should still be fighting for our place to go to Russian Federation.

"The emotions are very high, it's a huge, huge disappointment".

Britain's Press Association reported on Monday that the IFA intends to write to FIFA to express dismay at the circumstances that denied them a World Cup berth even though the Swiss deserved to go through over the two legs.

David added: "As a manager, he's unbelievable, we all love him and every single player plays for him".
