Awayday win cheers Armenia

Kazakhstan 1-2 Armenia The visitors moved off the bottom of Group A with their first win in six qualifiers thanks to two first-half goals.

Armenia lifted themselves off the bottom of Group A with their first win in six UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifiers at the expense of Kazakhstan in Almaty.

Hovsepyan decisive
The visitors were always the brighter and took full control of the match just after the half-hour mark. Robert Arzumanyan opened the scoring with a left-foot shot from the edge of the area before Sargis Hovsepyan doubled the advantage from the penalty spot after Samvel Melkonyan had been fouled. Ruslan Baltiyev then got a late consolation for Kazakhstan, also from the spot. Armenia's first goals of the campaign proved enough to move them on to four points, ahead of Azerbaijan on goal difference. They face a sterner test on Wednesday when they welcome the group leaders Poland to Yerevan as Azerbaijan go to Kazakhstan, who sit one point above the bottom two.
