A GAME FROM THE EURO 2008 QUALIFIERS WHERE KAZAKHSTAN ARE PLAYING ARMENIAN SIDE.
June 1 2007
Kazakhstan managed to get a good result in their previous game at
home against Serbia. They actually beat the Serb squad by 2 goals to
1. The other two home games they played against Finland and Poland were
0-2 and 0-1 defeats, which means they played well in the encounters
against generally stronger teams.
For the Kazakhi squad, Sergey Skorykh and Kairat Ashirbekov will not be
playing in this match. However, two OK strikers will replace these two.
The bigger squad problems are on the Armenian side. They will be
missing Romik Chaczatrjan and Ljewan Pachajian due to suspension.
Karjan Aleksanian, Edgar Manucharyan and Artavazd Karamyan will also
not available to play! Manucharyan is their best striker, while others
are also important in the first team lineup. The injury-depleted
Armenian team will have to find an appropriate replacement for
I think that Kazakhstan stands a great chance to win this game,
mostly because of Armenians injuries that have hit them. They have
proven they can play very well on the home field, by beating Serbia
2-1 in the last encounter. If they could beat Serbia I don’t see why
they couldn’t beat the Armenian side.
