PLAYING FOR OUR SHIRTS..
KAZAKHSTAN'S top scorer has revealed the limit of his team's ambitions - avoid humiliation.
Sergei Ostapenko, who plays for FC Almaty, said he just wants to avoid an "absurd disaster" against England, who won 5-1 at Wembley.
Ostapenko said: "We know it's practically impossible to avoid a defeat but our pride will make sure we play the best match in our history.
"That's our aim as a team and my dream is to score a goal and show I can progress in football and move up a level."
Keeper David Loria last night admitted he doesn't care about beating England, he just wants John Terry's shirt.
Loria, 27, is playing behind the defence with the third worst record in World Cup qualifiers, ahead of San Marino and Malta, conceding 16 goals in five games.
But the Chelsea fan admits he will be first in line to swap shirts with England's players even though that will infuriate Kazakhstan boss Bernd Storck.
Loria, who plays for Spartak Nalchik, said: "I want a shirt to remember the game by. My team-mates feel the same way.
"I'm a big fan of the Premier League, always watch the games on television, so we know all about the England players.
"We know just to score a goal would be a great achievement. We know the difference between the teams and yet we need to make the most of this experience.
"But to play against England is a big responsibility for us and even more so as it is in our stadium in Almaty.
"We will give everything and we don't go into the game thinking a defeat is definite. We need to cause England problems. I don't worry about England's forwards because these matches are the highlight of my career."
MISSION Ostapenko is sure his side can put up a fight
