Yuriy Krasnozhan, Kazakhstan coach:
We wanted to make fans happy with our game, with our result, but we weren't steady enough in defence or confident enough in attack. We have to make the transition from defence to attack faster. But there were some good spells, but we had problems in developing attacks.
Kazakhstan's first-choice striker Sergei Khizhnichenko will miss Saturday's home qualifier against Iceland after suffering a hamstring injury. The 23-year old forward is expected to be sidelined for at least ten days. The Aktobe marksman will also miss the international friendly against Russia on 31 March.
