Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Kazakhstan record their first-ever victory - and scored their first-ever goals at home - in the UEFA European Football Championship following their 2-1 defeat of Serbia at Almaty's Tcentralny stadium. Arno Pijpers' side poached two goals in the second half through Kairat Ashirbekov (47 minutes) and captain Nurbol Zhumaskaliyev (61), and though Serbia hit back through Nikola Žigić (68), Javier Clemente's side couldn't convert their superior possession into goals as the home side held out for a memorable victory. The success also marks Kazakhstan's first competitive A international match victory since becoming a UEFA member association. Their qualification campaign for the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ provided only one point from 12 outings - a 0-0 draw in their penultimate match away to Georgia. Kazakhstan's record in the UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifying competition currently reads one victory, two draws (away to Belgium and Azerbaijan) and three defeats.
