24 mins: Palmer travels to McBurnie, who supports the chief defender, trying to send him to Forrester. Instead he will play it out. McBurnie hasn't had any pleasure so far out of three hundred backs out of Kazakhstan.
21 minutes: Palmer is taken with an ugly challenge on the right, giving MacGregor the chance to send freekick into a penalty area. It's useful delivery but Postnikov makes it clear.
20 min: Kazakhstan is delighted to let the ball into Scotland in desperate areas and then try to evacuate them and continue until the count. Every time they do, Scotland looks non-stop at the back.
18 min: Scotland is again benefiting through the Armstrong-Burke route, which cannot completely close Kazakhstan, Vorovoskiy. This time Burke must make a corner.
17 min: Kazakhstan is ranked 117 at the world, but Scotland … Scotland … so we should have seen this score line. They have the incredible ability to make life difficult for themselves. But after that, this pessimistic beginning is a scene for heroic revival. Still time yet. At the same time, Kazakhstan is attacked.
15 min: Armstong tries to liberate Burke again, but Kazakhstan is wise of this journey and making the transition before he reaches the rising boy as Scottish constable.
13 min: For the second time in the game, Burke is going well running down the left and standing in a real cross. This time he will be wiped out of the post near a safeguarder.
12 min: Indeed, there is no excuse for Scottish access to these goals. The innkeepers earned credit for two good prizes and a pair of fine poets but the all of Scotland was defended throughout the shop. And now Kazakhstan is strong. Scotland has a operations on their hands to avoid further evasion, but not to get back into this.
GO! Kazakhstan 2-0 Scotland (Vorogovskiy 10)
A bad start has just started! Again, Scotland's defense is easily opened too long, because Kuat has a time and space to take back the defensive Shinnie. Vorogoskiy goes in to put the ball in the net from eight yards.
6 min: That is a huge goal to get over. It came from a streamy passage from a half-way path that should never have been defended to protect Scotland. But McKenna and Shinnie looked so satisfied that Pertsukh was running past them and going down the folder with the first feeling and then splitting a finish on the top of the web from 16 yards. Oh Scotland!
4 min: Burke is doing very well down the left, playing one with two with McBurnie and then turning past the right back to the line. It then seeks a low pass to the place of a penalty except Kazakhstan.
3 min: Scotland has made a strong start. They all get every ball and try to land with it, going with speed and purpose. The Kazakhs look like they had been expecting that and they are happy to protect depth and look at opportunities for fighting.
1 detail: Scotland starts. The blade is not full but home helpers are making sound, although they cannot decide whether or not they accept their own team.
The singing process is ready so we can go on to football. The team is home full of yellow uniform, and Scottish blue sports. They are all right to the world.

The League of Nations, but today the team will begin their march straight to the final through group levels.
