Kazakhstani head coach Magomed Adiev commented on the victory after the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying match against Northern Ireland.

– The head of state attended today's match. After the game he congratulated us in the dressing room. Definetely, this was a great honor for us. He wished us good luck and noticed that we needed to improve the team’s physical condition. I promised to work on it.

We made a couple of changes in tactics. Zainutdinov played in attack against Finland. In this match he first played in defense and after Kuat took the pitch, he played in attack again.

The team's condition is not well enough. The ending of the match was blurred. I'd say that playing against Finland, the pressure to take three points played a cruel joke. And today we got already angrier. We wanted to get back into the tournament race, and I think we did. Now we need to get ready for the away matches in October.

We are going to Almaty to prepare for our next matches against Denmark and Finland, and we will arrive there more adapted to the natural turf.
