Kazakhstan v Slovenia

UEFA Euro Qualifiers 2024

Astana Arena, Kazakhstan

23rd March, 20:30 pm

Preview

On Thursday night at the Astana Arena, Kazakhstan will welcome Slovenia to kick off their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign.
It will be their first-ever competitive encounter, and the other members of Group H are Finland, Denmark, Northern Ireland, San Marino, and Northern Ireland.

Kazakhstan has never been able to qualify for a significant international competition; the last time they tried to qualify for the Euros, they came in fifth place in their group after failing to compete with teams like Belgium and Russia.

The Hawks’ World Cup qualifying campaign followed the same pattern, earning just three points in a challenging group that included eventual champions France, along with Ukraine, Finland, and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Nonetheless, there are indications that Magomed Adiyev’s team is maturing as a footballing nation. They won the UEFA Nations League C title to earn promotion to League B in 2022, and in the process, they defeated Slovakia by a score of 1-0

Slovenia has played at two World Cups, in 2002 and 2010, as well as the European Championships in 2000 after managing to qualify for three major international competitions over the years. Kekci, on the other hand, has struggled more recently in qualifying, finishing fourth in their group throughout their most recent World Cup and European Championship campaigns. Since then, Slovenia has improved steadily, winning its last two friendlies, first defeating Romania 2-1 on the road in Cluj and then defeating Montenegro 1-0 at home thanks to a goal from Miha Zajc in the first half.
