The Kazakhstani midfielder, Yuriy Pertsukh, answered journalists' questions at the pre-match press conference in Glasgow.

- How difficult will it be for our team in comparison with the first match that took place in March? 

- We will do everything to achieve the result of the home match with Scotland. Regarding physical conditions - as far as possible we are preparing for the upcoming game to delight our fans, win and take the third place in the group.

- In the first leg, Kazakhstan played most in attack, what is the plan for the tomorrow's game? Will Kazakhstan play more in defense?

- It's hard to say how the match will turn out. We will try to controll the ball.

- How important is Kazakhstan to complete the qualifying round in third place? Do you believe that you can achieve this?

- Yes, of course, we can achieve such a result. Our aim is to take the third place in the group, so we will try to win tomorrow.

- After the first leg, you said that the rivals had underestimated Kazakhstan. Do you expect a different attitude from the Scotland team tomorrow?

- Yes, I’m sure that there will be a completely different game than in Kazakhstan. But we are preparing for this.

- Why will it be a different game?

- The first match took place in Nur-Sultan. The long flight and acclimatization could affect that game. Now we have an away match. The  local fans will drive their team forward. But we know tha our fans will also support us. We will try to do our best and get three points from Glasgow tomorrow.
