If Northern Ireland beat Spain, if Latvia beat Sweden...
The Irish Football Association are calling for David Healy to be rewarded by UEFA for breaking Davor Suker's 12-year record in a European Championship qualifying campaign.
Healy goes into the final match against Spain here on Wednesday on 13 goals, three ahead of Croatia's Eduardo da Silva.
The Northern Ireland and Fulham striker set a new best at the weekend with a glorious winner in the 2-1 victory over Denmark.
He is clear favourite to finish head of the pack overall in the qualifiers - but there is no Golden Boot on offer, or any prize whatsoever.
Now the IFA are backing manager Nigel Worthington and believe the record scorer should have some silverware.
President Raymond Kennedy said: "I fully support Nigel and we will be writing to UEFA to see if we can put the wheels in motion to get something done.
"To score 13 goals for a small country is a marvellous achievement when you look at the bigger names playing for superior nations, who have more chances to score.
"The nice thing about David is he is very down to earth. He does not have any airs and graces. He is very much a team player."
