Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill says the possibility of qualifying for Euro 2016 after just eight of 10 Group F matches is "beyond any of our 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. It is a fantastic position to be in," said O'Neill.
"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 couldn't have asked for more."
