Kazakhstan kicked off Group A with defeats by Turkey and Austria last month and will look to get back on track in Astana against Belgium on Friday before welcoming Germany four days later. He has named three newcomers in his squad; 21-year-olds Serikzhan Muzhikov and Aslan Darabayev and FK Aktobe's Sergei Lisenkov, 19. "We are building a team for the future," said Storck.
