Sweden commenced their bid to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup with a two-goal victory against Kazakhstan.

Rasmus Elm opened the scoring at the Malmö New Stadium with a 37th-minute volley. Although Erik Hamrén's team seldom looked like hitting top gear against opponents who lost 2-1 to the Republic of Ireland in their qualifying Group C opener on Friday, Marcus Berg made the points safe in added time.
