"I've been through qualifiers myself. When we won the World Cup in 1990, we almost didn't qualify. It was down to the last game, which we won 2-1, and the opponent -- Wales at that time -- Mark
Hughes missed a 100 percent chance in the 88th minute. And Germany wouldn't have gone to the World Cup. That's how close it can get."
