World Cup 2010 Qualifiers: England 5-1 Kazakhstan

England got three wins out of three in the World Cup 2010 qualifiers campaign with a fine second-half display against Kazakhstan. After a poor first half Rio Ferdinand, captain, in the absence of the injured John Terry, headed in a corner, before Alexandr Kuchma of Kazakhstan headed into his their own goal. Zhambyl Kukeyev fired one back after an Ashley Cole mistake before Wayne Rooney headed in a cross by Wes Brown and then tapped David Beckham's free-kick. Jermain Defoe finished off the scoring with a late, low finish.
