    • 90+3' All over in Kaiserslautern! An easy, easy win for Germany, who make it five wins out of five in qualifying.
    • 88' GOAL!! There's the fourth goal, and no surprise to see who scores it! Klose taps in from close range after Khedira capitalises on some Kazakh dithering and nicks the ball inside the box.
    • 82' Khedira is one of four German players completely unmarked as the ball comes into the box, but he puts his free header wide! Should have scored...
    • 70' Schweinsteiger finds Ozil, who tries to take it on the volley but ends up kicking the defender's leg, and the ball ricochets to safety for Kazakhstan.
    • 61' It's all been a bit pedestrian in the second half. And the reason you know I'm right is that a Mexican wave is doing the rounds of the Fritz-Walter-Stadion.
    • 46' Second half under way in Kaiserslautern! Germany out to enjoy themselves, and it is just damage limitation for Kazakhstan now.
    • 43' GOAL! Oh my, that is the worst attempt to play offside I have ever seen! Ozil plays a simple lobbed pass into Muller eight yards out. Kazakhstan race out of the box en masse, but Muller is well onside and executes a simple finish.
    • 41' Ozil makes a diagonal run inside from the right, exchanges passes with Podolski and cannot get his shot away...
    • 28' Excellent double save from David Loria, who twice denies Klose from close range! Germany completely dominant...
    • 25' GOAL! Thomas Muller makes it two for Germany! Mesut Ozil drives a pacy free-kick in from the right and Muller glances his header into the far corner. Too easy for Germany.
    • 15' From Infostrada: Klose becomes the 5th German to score in 6+ successive matches and is the first in 30 years.
    • 13' Dazzling interplay between Muller and Lahm inside the Kazakh box... but the Germany skipper is leaning back as he shoots, and he scoops his shot onto the top of the net.
    • 9' That goal was Miroslav Klose's 61st in 108 appearances for Germany. A staggering record.
    • 7' Germany have made a lightning quick start, and could be two or three goals to the good already.
    • 3' GOAL!! Germany lead already! Schweinsteiger delivers an inswinging free-kick from the left, it skips past everyone and Miroslav Klose attacks the far post where he has a simple tap-in! A simple goal for Germany.
    • 1' It's game on at the Fritz-Walter Stadion in Kaiserslautern! Germany playing from left to right as we see it in white and black. Kazakhstan in blue and yellow.
    • - This game, like many other Euro 2012 qualifiers today, has been preceded by a minute's silence for the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
    • - GERMANY: Neuer, Lahm, Mertesacker, Badstuber, Aogo, Schweinsteiger, Khedira, Muller, Ozil, Podolski, Klose... Subs: Wiese, Friedrich, Kroos, Goetze, Boateng, Bender, Gomez...
