Blackburn midfielder Robbie Savage insists Wales under John Toshack stand no chance of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup.

Wales' Euro 2008 qualification hopes all but ended by their 2-0 defeat to Germany, leaving them stranded on seven points, 15 behind the group leaders.

Savage, who last played for his country in 2005, said: "John Toshack told us to judge him after the European qualifying games. The truth is we have gone a long way backwards.

"I do hope he doesn't start the we'll make it to South Africa' stuff because that would be utterly ridiculous and we all know it."

He added: "There's more chance of me flying Concorde to the moon blindfolded than there is of you taking Wales to the South African World Cup.

"I do hope we aren't going to get a load of stuff about how Wales will qualify for South Africa.

"It's not going to happen and as a Wales fan I'm as dejected as the rest of the nation. Only 25,000 turned up for a qualifier against one of the world's best teams - that tells you everything.

"Just a few years ago under Mark Hughes we beat Germany in a friendly at the Millennium Stadium in front of 75,000 - that tells you how far we've sunk."
