Armenia beats Kazakhstan 2-0 in 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier
15:00, 27 March 2017, 948

AKIPRESS.COM - Armenia beat the 10-man Kazakhstan 2-0 at home on Sunday in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Following their incredible 3-2 comeback win over Group E leaders Montenegro last November, Armenia manager Artur Petrosyan was forced to make an early substation following a third minute injury of Gevorg Ghazaryan, Xingua reported.

The home team kept pressing the opponents in their own half of the field, but Kazakhstan maintained a clean sheet and even created one or two decent chances.

Kazakhstan's Sergiy Malyi received his second yellow on the 64th minute. It took only 9 minutes for Armenia to get the upper hand when Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored.

Just two minutes later, Aras Oezbiliz doubled the score for Armenia, which picked up its second win in the group and is now in fourth place with six points behind Poland, Montenegro and Denmark.

Armenia will face Montenegro next in June.
