Kazakhstan rallied from a goal behind to overcome Faroe Islands 2-1 and register their first three points of 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying.

Without a win in six Group C outings, Miroslav Beranek's team were staring down the barrel when Faroe Islands skipper Fródi Benjaminsen opened the scoring after 23 minutes. The hosts were becoming increasingly edgy until Nurbol Zhumaskaliyev struck from the spot shortly after half-time before Andrei Finonchenko completed the turnaround after coming off the bench.
