Austria enjoy sweet night in Vienna

Austria 4-0 Kazakhstan
Towering forward Marc Janko scored twice as the home side cruised to a commanding victory in Group C.

Austria swept aside Kazakhstan 4-0 in Vienna to record their first victory in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group C, thanks in part to a pair of goals from forward Marc Janko.

Marcel Koller's charges had been held to a goalless draw by the same opposition five days earlier but Janko needed only 24 minutes to break the deadlock this time. David Alaba also had a score to settle – returning to action after a lengthy lay-off – and did so by finding the net after Janko had doubled Austria's lead. Martin Harnik then made it four in added time. 

The home side seized the initiative from the off and were rewarded for their early adventure when Janko planted Alaba's devious delivery past goalkeeper Andrei Sidelnikov. The FC Bayern München full-back then struck the woodwork, while Kazakhstan's only riposte came via Ulan Konysbaev's ambitious effort, which sailed over.  

The second half bore an uncanny resemblance to the first as Austria attacked with enthusiasm. Alaba again led the charge, crossing for Janko, who powered an unstoppable header beyond the goalkeeper. Not yet satisfied, Alaba then crowned a stellar performance with a goal of his own on 71 minutes, sweeping in Marko Arnautović's cut-back, before Harnik rounded off a commanding performance in added time.
