The Kazakhstan national football team represents Kazakhstan in international men's association football and is directed by Football Federation of Kazakhstan. They split from the Soviet Union national football team after independence in 1991 and joined the Asian Football Confederation's Central and South Asian Football Federation. After failing to qualify for the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cup they joined UEFA, but are yet to qualify for a World Cup or UEFA European Championship.

Since 2011 they have been managed by Miroslav Baranek from the Czech Republic.

History

AFC Member (1992-2002)

First Match

The country of Kazakhstan declared independence from the Soviet Union on 16 December 1991. Its national team then split from the Soviet Union national football team (a UEFA member) and joined the Asian Football Confederation's Central and South Asian Football Federation.

The team played their first match against another former-Soviet debutant, Turkmenistan, on 1 June, 1992, as part of a Central Asian Tournament. Kazakhstan won 1-0. The tournament also saw the footballing debuts of Uzbekistan, Kyrgystan and Tajikistan.

1998 World Cup Qualification

Kazakhstan entered qualification for the first time, in the attempt to reach the 1998 FIFA World Cup. In the first round they were placed in Group 9 alongside Pakistan and Iraq. Kazakhstan's first qualifying match was won 3-0 at home in Almaty on 11 May 1997, against Pakistan. On 6 June they travelled to Baghdad to face Iraq and won 2-1, then five days later won an away match against Pakistan, 7-0 in Lahore. The result in Lahore remains Kazakhstan's biggest-ever international win. They retained the 100% start to World Cup football by beating Iraq at home 3-1 on 29 June.

In the second and final round of qualification, Kazakhstan came last in the group. Their only victory was on 18 October 1997, when they beat the United Arab Emirates 3-0 at home. Kazakhstan drew three other games - all at home (versus Uzbekistan, Japan and South Korea).

 Nepal 6 2 0 4 13 25 −12 6
 Macau 6 0 0 6 2 31 −29 0

In the first round of Asian qualifying, Kazakhstan were placed in Group 6 alongside Iraq, Nepal and Macau. All games in the group were to be held in Almaty, Kazakhstan, after Nepal failed to organise matches in Kathmandu in March 2001. After an Iraqi protest, the first three games by each team were moved to Baghdad, Iraq.

Kazakhstan started off well in Baghdad by beating Nepal 6-0 with two goals by Oleg Litvinenko on 12 April, and Macau 3-0 two days later. On 16 April they held Iraq to a 1-1 draw in front of 50,000. Ruslan Baltiev put the Kazakhs in front in the 6th minute and Abdul-Wahab Abu Al-Hail equalised with a penalty in the 31st.

In Almaty Central Stadium, Kazakhstan beat Nepal 3-0 with two goals by Maksim Igorevich Shevchenko on 21 April. Two days later they beat Macau 5-0, Dmitriy Byakov and Igor Avdeyev scored two each after a goalless first half. The final game on 25 April saw a 1-1 draw against Iraq in front of 25,000. Litvinenko put Kazakhstan ahead in the 32nd but Iraq equalised ten minutes later. Despite being level on points, Iraq advanced on goal difference mainly due to a 9-1 victory over Nepal.

UEFA Member (2002-)

Kazakhstan joined UEFA in 2002. They had to wait until the 2002 FIFA World Cup finished on 30 June before making the switch, as they had entered the tournament as an AFC member. Kazakhstan therefore could not enter qualification for UEFA Euro 2004, as the draw had been made on 25 January. The team played UEFA opposition for the first time on 14 November 2001, and drew 0-0 away to Estonia. [1]
