Helping Wales get to their first major tournament since 1958 is top of Gareth Bale's wish list for next season, he has said.
The 25-year-old marked his 50th international appearance on Friday with the only goal against Belgium to take Wales to within touching distance of Euro 2016.
The Real Madrid forward's strike moved Chris Coleman's side three points clear at the top of Group B with four games remaining.
I think everybody knows how much I want to get to a major tournament with Wales. It's top of my list now. It's on, so we'll keep working hard to do it.
We know what position we're in and we're going to enjoy this.
We know there's still a long way to go. We can enjoy now, but when the next camp comes around we will be straight back on the floor.
We will be working hard on the training field and ready to do the business.

The chief executive of a beleaguered Welsh health trust has been suspended with immediate effect, following a number of serious concerns over the way it has been run.
Health Minister Mark Drakeford told the Welsh Assembly today that Prof Trevor Purt, who ran the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, had been suspended.
It comes after the board was placed in special measures yesterday, as the trust faced backlash from a report last month alleging "institutional abuse" had taken place at a now-closed mental health unit.
Mr Drakeford said he had demanded improvements from the trust in the areas of leadership, mental health services, maternity services, GP and primary care, as well as "reconnecting with the public".
The measures I have announced will provide immediate stability and ensure the board has clear and authoritative advice and guidance in discharging its responsibilities.
Special measures are only instituted in response to serious concerns - it is not a routine response; it reflects the seriousness of the situation.
NHS Wales chief Simon Dean has been asked to step in as an "accountable officer", he added.
The Welsh Government said it wants to bring the devices in line with existing smoking laws.Read the full story ›
A Welsh health trust is being placed in special measures after concerns were raised over leadership, governance and progress, the country's Health Minister has announced.
The Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board came under fire after a report found staff had treated mental health patients "like animals", leaving them in soiled beds and restrained with furniture.
Health Minister Mark Drakeford made the announcement following a meeting between the Welsh Government, the Wales Audit Office and the Health Inspectorate Wales.
This significant decision is made in line with the escalation framework. It reflects serious and outstanding concerns about the leadership, governance and progress in the Health Board over some time.
A thorough and balanced assessment has taken place on areas of concern that will form the basis of actions to be taken as a result of special measures.
Day-to-day activities and services at the trust will continue as normal, he added.
