The Kazakhstani head coach Magomed Adiev spoke to the media in his pre-match press conference.

– The team is in a good mood. The training days we spent were in a positive mood too. You can feel the players' mood. We realize the importance of the upcoming matches.

Our team and country have one desire - to win. Of course, we think about cards, we need to keep this in mind. You will see certain changes tomorrow. Because we have personnel problems. Unfortunately, Zainutdinov has been injured. Actually, we are thinking about another player in this position, so we won’t change the plan a lot.

There are football players who attended the introductory training camp. There are many young players, there is another defender, Asrankulov. But we left Ruslan behind. He doesn’t have a visa, he won’t fly to Slovenia. However, we are already leading him closer to the team, to get some motivation.

Definetely, when we talk about the national team, no experiments are possiblle. I minimize the risks, because the responsibility is great, the whole country is watching the national team’s match. I take the steps that I am confident in. Tomorrow's match will be the same.
