Heimir Halgrimsson, Iceland co-coach:


We knew that it would be a hard game. Kazakhstan started much better than us, but we scored first and took the initiative. In the second half, we started to play out the game, which is not natural for Iceland. We need to stay alert at all times, so we made some changes, added some fresh legs, and it all worked out - then we scored the third goal.

A 3-0 win, so far away from home - it is a result that we are really surprised by and happy with. We have made a brilliant start in qualifying. We have 12 points and 12 goals scored, with two conceded. That's something we are not used to. Now we are looking forward to the next match, which will be at home in June.

Iceland forward Eidur Gudjohnsen made his international debut against Estonia 24th April 1996. His return to the international stage - Gudjohnsen could earn his 79th cap against Kazakstan on Saturday - will mean he would have represented his country for almost 20 years.

Meanwhile, captain Aron Einar Gunnarsson's wife has given birth to a boy. The baby was born in Wales while his father remains in Kazakstan ahead of the Group A tie.
